If everything goes as planned (but life being what it is… who knows!?)
I should be able to attend the 3 days! \o/

I can definitively carry stuff and move things around. For the rest, who

That might be the perfect time to discuss something that I've wanted to
organise for a looong time: talking about Guix on the French radio in

And Guix would be a part of it.
We "just" need to identify potential speakers.

- Guix System on Olimex Olinuxino
- Guix System GNU/Hurd on Olinuxino… and Viking D8… and Thinkpad T200
- GNUnet on Guix System GNU/Hurd on Olinuxino

Have you spotted the pattern?! :-)

Looking forward to September!
