Debian Electronics BOF

This session will start with a brief report on the current state of electronics package maintenance and some upstream changes and challenges, then move to an open discussion on whether we have the right tools packaged, how to get more people involved in maintaining them, and generally how to improve the state of the electronics packages in Debian.
