idem, I'm really disappointed we could'nt even get a _stand_ !!
Ideally we should try to get at least a lightning talk. London is now
even closer to bruxelles ;-) so I'll probably go anyway to the fosdem,
stand or not, and if we can give lightning talks on gnustep and
etoile, that'd be great..
Organizing a big gnustep meeting (a pendant to last summer's
alpenstep) would be awesome as well, and quite likely more useful for
the project than a booth at the fosdem. Any volunteer to start
organizing that ? :)
