1. Hackfest locations
Bjoern said that there is no hackfest planned after LibOCon in
September. There will be Fosdem in February, then we can have one in
November/December area and another one in spring. The proposals are
Cambridge, Hamburg, Freiburg, Gran Canaria and Toulouse. Freiburg is to
be considered for spring, we could have Gran Canaria after Fosdem, and
then Cambridge. Toulouse is proposed for November. In any case one of
these could be quickly replaced by Hamburg in case of failure. Bjoern
will get back to Arnaud for Toulouse.
