I think we may just not ask for the stand this year... just ask for a
dev-room. And only do a few talks (i.e., "State of GNUstep 2010") and
keep hacking the rest of the time.
Put posters pointing to the dev room in the hallway, and that's it!

That way we'll hopefully do some good work while we are all together.
A few talks could be interesting, but no more than that -- the feeling
I got from the last fosdems I attended was that we would take a lot of
time preparing for the stand, organizing talks, but there weren't that
much interest overall. So it seems to me our efforts would be better
spent hacking together...
