        I should have not said calendar but agenda :-) Here is the
first draft I produced:


        The XML source is at


        I have a few questions related to this:

        - Except for the 1st september 2001 milestone, I was not 
          able to find out what are the next events that should be
          watched. Could you point me to a document that list them ?
        - I've not been able to spot documents related to lobbying
          activity except: petition, consultation, jp smets reports
          (where can I find an history of what happened with this
           document ?). Anyone could, in theory, get an appointment
          with EU officials on the subject of Software Patents. Did
          someone do that ? Where can I find a history of such lobbying

        - How can I integrate the agenda I built into petition.eurolinux.org ?
          Is it desirable, useless, too complex, not important ?

        - I found here and there references to official positions 
          taken by european governments on the subject of Software Patents
          but I could not find pointers giving proofs of such positions.
          Could you point to a specific document ?
