During LP2010 Brian and I have talked about promoting a GHM in Brazil. The immediate idea that came up from Alexandre Oliva (FSFLA) was to co-locate it with FISL, the biggest free software event in Brazil. It seems that the FISL organizers liked the idea to have a GHM + GNU track (specially if rms and the FSF can make it to the event again this year), although we still need to talk further about it.

One special thing is that FISL dates partially coincide with GUADEC, and there would be at least one overlapping day between both GHM's. Brian suggested that we set up a video link for a joint session. Let me know what you think (there might be time zone issues, though).

BTW, one central topic we might want to debate here is "how to attract more contributors to GNU?", since it has to do with the fact that Brazil is a good example in free software adoption (government, companies, user communities) but there are very few Brazilians acting as free software developers.
