GNOME developer Sam Thursfield says the party starts at 6PM and ends at 9PM, and that attendees can look forward to “free refreshments, an overview of the new features in 3.22, advice on how install a free desktop OS on your computer and how contribute to GNOME or a related Free Software project.”

Don’t be shy as the party is open to everyone, from the nervous Linux newbies to anarchic free software fanatics.
