It's that time of year again, and the FOSDEM people are well underway 
with organising FOSDEM 2008.

For those not familiar with FOSDEM yet, it stands for Free Open Source 
Developers European Meeting. It takes place every year, the last weekend 
of february, in Brussels, Belgium, on a university campus of the ULB. 
This year it will happen on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th.

Main, but of course very preliminary FOSDEM site:

Here are some older FOSDEM websites:

Here is some more information on our previous participations:

For the last two years we've had a Developers Room there, and in 2006 
this was preceded by a HotHouse event, where we got a room from a 
students group of the ULB, and we just spent a day and a half hacking 
and talking there.

FOSDEM is free for all. We might want to do a hothouse again, and this 
will then also be accessible freely to Xorg developers. The only cost 
for anyone visiting us at FOSDEM would be travel, hotel and sustenance.
Since this is only the initial mail, nothing is known about Xorg 
funding of anything yet.

So far, a few of the usual suspects in our community have solemnly sworn 
to come already (;p), but i would like to inquire about further interest 
on the mailinglist. I think i can go ahead and commit to the devroom, 
but it would also be nice to know how many people would like to come 
this year, and how many people would be interested in a HotHouse.
