Fwd: [FOSDEM] News : Call For Developer Rooms

The FOSDEM call for developer rooms is out. As the conditions for requests state there's a preference for requests with a general topic, e.g. from projects with similar goals/domains. So I guess a joint application of GNUstep, √Čtoil√© and OpenGroupware.org (Helge, is this o.k.?) like last year would be the best. Maybe we can find some other projects with some relation to GNUstep to join in. Any ideas? Window Maker comes to my mind here. Is somebody in contact with those guys? Who else could join in?

I think this is also an occasion to talk about reasons why *especially we* would need a dev-room (For instance: "we deliver cross platform developer tools so a developers conference is the best place to make those known"). I will submit the best reasons with our application for the room.

Please discuss.

When we reach some agrement I am ready to submit our proposal. That has to happen before 2009-11-22.

A *devroom* is a room in which projects can organize their own schedule made
of presentations, brainstorming and hacking sessions. Our goal is to
stimulate developer collaboration and cross-pollination between projects, and as such we strongly favor projects with similar goals and domains to host a
devroom together.

*Distribution projects:* As every year we only have a limited number of
rooms, yet every year more and more individual distributions request a
Developer Room at FOSDEM. We do not want to have to choose between them, but instead push our mission of a collaboration platform and cross- pollination even further. We will host mixed distribution rooms where talks and sessions will be organized *by topic*. Contributors from all distributions are welcome to join in order to participate, attend, propose topics and sessions. To do
so, please subscribe to the distro mailinglist [1].

.... What we offer:

  * a room on Saturday and/or Sunday,
  * a video projector (with VGA cable)
  * power (C/E plugs)
  * wired (RJ-45) network with Internet access at the speaker's desk,
  * best-effort shared wireless Internet access (a and b),
* publication of the schedule on the FOSDEM website, including speaker bios
    and talk abstracts.

.... Conditions for requests:

* preference for requests with a general topic, eg. from projects with
    similar goals/domains,
* be involved in Free or Opensource Software (the projects produce and release software under an opensource license or otherwise contributes to
    opensource activities and communities),
  * send us a devroom request before 2009-11-22 as described below,

Distribution talks are organized collectively on the distro mailinglist [2].
Others can request a devroom by submitting the form below. For further
questions, contact address@hidden [3].
The number of available rooms is limited so the FOSDEM organization will
select the proposals that can get a devroom.

*Key Dates:*
2009-11-22: Deadline for devroom requests
2009-11-29: Acceptance notification of devrooms
2010-02-06 to 2009-02-07: FOSDEM 2010
