About the Devroom - what do we need it for?
A Devroom is IMHO good for making public presentations and discussions
to/with the participants. The agenda is announced on the FOSDEM Web
pages and the printed brochure. So, by having interesting talks we can
attract/address the general audience. But, it is not useful for doing
In either case having a devroom on Friday does not help. For
developing/hacking such a room is not a suitable environment. And on
Friday we will not have any audience for public talks.
So, we should come to a decision if we still want to do a Pre-FOSDEM
Workshop at Brussels (it appears to be quite expensive to get a hotel
there!) or if we cancel that and have a spearate "AlpenSTEP"-like
developer meeting in April e.g. near Frankfurt.
It mainly depends on the travelling plans of our overseas visitors -
if they want to come to Europe twice or would want to skip FOSDEM.
