GNOME CVS is accessible only with SSH
If you hit this then go read Owen's mail on the change, the reasons and how to best handle it.
Gnome Live CDs
Following Luis' announcement, fr.rpmfind.net now hosts copies of GNOME 2.12 live CDs, if for some reason you can't use Bittorrent, get them there.
GNOME Summit registration
There is only 35 persons listed at the moment, this looks a low number to me, please take the time to register by just adding your name to the list (and possibly to create an account on live.gnome.org if you didn't yet) if you think you are coming, this will help the logistic a lot, thanks !
