Tokyo Linux Users Group


All Linux lovers, and supporters of open source code and free software, in the Kanto area (or anywhere else) are invited to attend the next Tokyo Linux Users Group meeting. Membership is open to anyone. There are currently no membership dues or entrance fees.

TLUG meetings are traditionally small and unstructured (VERY CASUAL). Most of the benefit of the meeting comes from chatting with other Linux users and having informal discussions.

As a general rule, the Technical Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of odd-numbered months and the Nomikai Meetings are usually held on the 2nd Friday of even-numbered months. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, so it is best to keep an eye on the mailing list, or check back here for date/venue changes as the date approaches.

Mailman - navigating commercial closed-source in an open source project - Stephen Turnbull

Mailman 3 is now the upgrade path for most sites with a team of three applications (Mailman core which handles the mail, and two Django apps, Postorius for administration and user profiles, and HyperKitty for archives). There are now commercially developed closed-source alternatives for Postorius and HyperKitty. Stephen will talk about how this came about, the frictions and how it can work.

Exploring Lilypond - Andreas Kieckens

Andreas will talk about his progress exploring Lilypond which is a language for describing music in text files that can be compiled to midi or score.

  1. Introduction of new members
  2. News about Linux/Open Source, general announcements, Q&A
