However, it's worth mentioning that after transitioning to Savannah, we'll
completely revamp the website and make it a wiki using DokuWiki

plan on running the current Django-based version of the website on GNU infra. 
For this reason, I didn't attach a source tarball of the website's source,
though it's accessible from the git repository mentioned above.  For the same
reason, no copyright notices or license headers were added to individual

==== Description: ====
"EmacsConf is a conference about the joy of Emacs, Emacs Lisp, and memorizing
key sequences."

EmacsConf is a conference centred around GNU/Emacs and its users, where people
talk about anything and everything Emacs and meet and hang out with fellow
Emacs users and developers.

The previous EmacsConf was held in 2015 in San Francisco.  I'm hoping we could
all make it a yearly event.  I'm starting planning for the next one, which I'm
hoping to hold either late-fall 2018 or in summer of 2019, and host it here in

I'd love to be able to host various parts of the EmacsConf infra (wiki,
mailing list, git repositories) on Savannah and other GNU infra, both as a way
of showing that EmacsConf values and very much agrees with the philosophy of
the GNU project and FSF, and also to hopefully bring more eyes on Savannah and
free software tools.

==== Other Software Required: ====
Below is a list of the dependencies of the website, currently a
CMS written on top of Django.  However, as mentioned above, after migrating to
Savannah, we'll transition to using a wiki for the website.
