Makes a lot of sense for Qt to be in ELC and, since they're colocated, show up
and make some splash at the Android Builders. But of itself, the ABS is not an
event for Qt: it's audience are device builders and OEMs.

Doesn't seem very interesting to us...

Good event, we should be present. I found the last edition to be still very
much focused on kernel development, but I'm sure the LF would welcome
discussions higher up in the stack. Suggested topics of collaboration:
- Wayland and improving the Linux graphics stack
- XDG standards (e.g. QStandardPaths, QDesktopFile, QMimeType)
- LSB 5.0 and Qt 4 and 5

Not sure about these. Not Qt's area.

The LinuxCons are generic and we should be present. I'll be in the LinuxCon
Brazil in two weeks and in one of my sessions, I'll draw heavily on the Open
Governance efforts to present how one could begin to build a community.
