 +==== X2GoHackTrain 2014 - cancelled :-( ==== 
 +Thanks to German Rail retiring (in Blade Runner style) the heritage railbusses from service, there will be no X2GoHackTrain in 2014. :'( Had they been available, a combination of train ride, BBQ at a lake side, and an optional short hike would have been planned. 
 +

 +(new X2Go Community Event 2014) 
 + 
 +Date: 2014-10-31 to 2014-11-02

 +    * **Update: we will have to //arrive// by approx. 1430 hours/​2:​30pm local time to pick up our reserved tickets!**

 +    * Due to late feedback from some participants,​ there are only 6 slots available for the tour unless we would book a custom one (which would have been more expensive, so we opted against it)

 +  * <​del>​depending on majority vote, we will either have lunch before the guided tour, or dinner afterwards.</​del>​ **Update:** Dinner will be after the guided tour, see below. 
 +  * For Dinner, we will go to the http://​www.unperfekthaus.de restaurant, as they offer "flat rate" food and all items on their menu are tagged in English and German. 
 +    * Tour participants:​ 
 +      - You will leave the mining site with the Tram #107 to Viehofer Platz at either  
 +        * 1714 hours/​5:​14pm or

 +      - from Viehofer Platz, it is an 11 minute walk to Unperfekthaus,​  
 +      - So you will arrive at Unperfekthaus either around 1737 hours/​5:​37pm local time or 1752 hours/​5:​52pm local time.

 +__Plan for Sunday 2014-11-02:​__ 
 +  * breakfast between 0900 hours/9am - 1000 hours/10am local time 
 +  * "room cleaning rage" (we need to clean the rooms ourselves, that's one of the reasons why the rates are so cheap)

 +  * stowing of personal belongings in chimney room or conference room

 +  * departure is around 1530 hours/​3:​30pm local time 
 + 
 +__Responsibilities:​__ 
 +  * planning and preparation - Stefan 
 +  * carpooling option for the Karlsruhe-Frankfurt-Essen route - Mihai 
 +  * liaison for Linuxhotel staff between 2014-10-31 and 2014-11-02 - Mike#1 
 + 
 +__Info for train travellers:​__ 
 +  * The nearest subway station is "​Essen-Horst"​ 
 +  * This subway line is operated by Deutsche Bahn, so you can book your railway ticket to destination Essen-Horst and have the subway ticket included in your regular train ticket. Advantage: no need to figure out how the local ticket vending machine works 
 +  * It's a ~ 15 Minute walk from Essen-Horst to the Linuxhotel, please use the route as suggested here: http://​goo.gl/​maps/​wJWrv 
 +  * NB: some navigation systems plot a shorter pedestrian route that leads through the woods, but from personal experience I (Stefan) can tell you that you do not want to use that path when carrying luggage, possibly in the dark, when you've never walked it before. 
 + 
 +__Topics for the coding sessions:​__ 
 +  - brain storming: organizational structure for an X2Go foundation/​club/​association or similar 
 +    * suggestion by Stefan: Since it will most likely be a "​club"​ ("​eingetragener Verein"​) under German law, we need 7 people physically present for the founding.  
 +      * The Gathering 2014 will be too early to get the club founded. 
 +      * We should prepare all the necessary paperwork ASAP after "X2Go: The Gathering 2014" and aim for a "X2Go: The Gathering 2015" way earlier in 2015, maybe some time between March-May, where we can get the club founded. 
 +      * "X2Go: The Gathering 2015" could take place in Treuchtlingen,​ where X2Go was originally created. 
 +  - show-and-tell:​  
 +    - new X2Go TCE (both Mike#​1'​s and Stefan'​s approach) 
 +    - electronic GloveBox (Stefan) 
 +    - mTelePlayer (theUserII/​GZNG will join us for a talk - via Skype) 
 +  - X2Go Client/​Server NG - event-driven architecture (Mike#1? Who else?) 
 +  - support for rbash, postgres, gssapi (Henning) 
 +  - possibly something Window-ish or Mac-ish by Mike#2 and/or Mihai

 +==== 2013 ==== 
 + 
 +=== X2GoHackTrain 2013 (2013-09-15) === 
 + 
 +Sadly, both Heinz and Alex weren'​t able to make it to the 2013 event, but Mihai was back, and Mihai and Stefan were joined by a few fellow Linux/X2Go enthusiasts from [[http://​www.lihas.de|LinuxHaus Stuttgart]]. This time, we had the entire dining car for ourselves as our rolling party location, and after having lunch in the station diner again, we got a guided tour around the stables and horses of the [[http://​www.gestuet-marbach.de/​pb/,​Lde/​Startseite/​Service/​English+Site|state-run stud farm.]]  
 +It seems that nobody remembered to take pictures, though. :-( 
 + 
 +=== DebConf 2013 === 
 +  * [[http://​meetings-archive.debian.net/​pub/​debian-meetings/​2013/​debconf13/​webm-high/​960_X2Go_Terminal_Server_Suite_and_Debian.webm|Talk on X2Go]] by Mike Gabriel (August 2013) 
 + 
 +=== Google Summer or Code 2013 === 
 +  * The X2Go Project did not get accepted for GSOC2013 
 + 
 +==== 2012 ==== 
 + 
 +=== X2GoHackTrain 2012 (2012-09-30) === 
 +X2GoHackTrain 2012 started out as a plan for a company-sponsored BBQ for the X2Go core developers. 
 +During the initial planning stages, it turned out that Alex (X2Go Co-Founder) would not be able to attend during summer due to his personal commitments,​ and by the time he would be able to attend, temperatures would be too low for an enjoyable BBQ. 
 + 
 +So, X2GoHackTrain to the rescue: As the owner of the company that wanted to sponsor the BBQ is also a member of a volunteer organization that maintains a heritage Diesel railbus, the decision was made to gather inside the train, have lunch together at a railway station diner along the way, and visit a car museum. ​
