So, while at our 4th Dutch LibreOffice (Hackers) event, we discussed this.
Since in The Netherlands we have both a busy Sinterklaas fest and a long 
Christmas time, and we are already in the end of November, there is 
little change in organising a successful test-event in December,
Anyway not for us.
A test-event, was one of the ideas from the presentation (1), slide #24

So we think about January 21, convenient for all involved here.
But looking at the release plan, that is just after the RC1 for 3.5.0. 
Which is sad, because the goal is to get more people test early, thus 
after the first/second build after feature freeze...

  - Would it be an idea to work parallel in some countries (France, 
  - January 21 is a possibility..
  - But another moment earlier too, so that some of us (Nl/Flanders) 
could join virtual?

What do you think?



Prima office software - niet duur, wél vrij ?!
