Hi there,

Below the draft for the announcement and the link to the wiki.

        Looks excellent.

Do we want a deadline for the cfp ?

        Good question; normaly some flexibility is good here, along with
prodding people into action.

Do we want to tell about current uncertainty wrt refund of costs ?

        I would make the text more like:

        "FOSDEM is a free conference to attend, and we will try to seek
         sponsorship, but funding is limited, so please only request it
         if you cannot attend otherwise"

        how about that ? :-)

Do we want to discuss at ?

        Can do; lets whack it in the wiki first, and just not announce it - so
people can go edit it in-place there.

The draft for the announcement:

        And thanks for the great start ! :-) wonderful to get a nucleus to grow
this around.

2011 Brussels, FOSDEM... Your first chance ever to give a talk for 
LibreOffice at this great open source event … obviously you don't want 
to miss this!

        Love it :-)

So do you want to share for example your experience in starting hacking 
the code, or tell about the tweaks in your build environment, code 
changes you have done or those that you prepare, or your work on QA? 
Simply submit your proposal at our wiki:

        One thing I would like is to have a range of talk lengths. ie. I think
we should have some 30 minute, and some 15 minute, slots - and perhaps
some 5 minutes. There is great benefit in having people simply stand up,
say hello, and sit down again ;-) so you get to know who they are - and
they build confidence. 

When there are too many proposals, we will have to choose, so please 
give a clear description of your talk, goal and target audience.
We are going to try to arrange sponsoring for our speakers, but the 
possibilities are not sure at the moment.

        I would ask for a couple of paragraphs about the talk - maximum 300
words - otherwise, some will write their life story, and others two
lines :-)

        Anyhow - thanks muchly for the nice, punchy draft :-) and leading this.
