I'm forwarding this news as there may be some folks interested.
The OuterConf 2013 is first FOSS conference organised
by the Outercurve Foundation (http://www.outercurve.org/),
originated from Microsoft they runs CodePlex

Details here:

>From technical point, there will be a debate about packaging
open source software for Windows: NuGet vs CoApp.
The last project was started by Microsoft.
For Windows users at OSGeo (i.e. OSGeo4W), I think CoApp
has great potential to become RPM or deb equivalent [1],
and give the public freedom from DLL hell as well as Cygwin,
MSys and other such prosthesis.
