1st. "AlpenStep" / GNUstep EDM: What it is about

During FOSDEM 2007 it was felt that we need a separate GNUstep developer's meeting so that we all have the time to go through ideas, discuss, present, decide, plan future aspects without being in three places at the same time.

A thread started on the discussion list shows a lot of interest in such a meeting.

So, let's make nails with heads and have GSFun, GSHack and maybe GSHike!


to be defined


  1. St-Gervais les Bains (Bettex) - chalet up to 12 persons
  2. near Bergamo - location to be defined by requirements
  3. Sarentino - to be verified
  4. Freiburg area
  5. Switzerland (Emmental?)
  6. Switzerland CH-1923 Les Marécottes


We hope that we can keep accomodation cost low.

To reduce travel cost, we can try to do car sharing.


A lot of sponsorship for accommodation support for students and other participants who have demand would be very welcome!


Weekend in September

something like Sat 15:00 - Sun 15:00

like 31 August / 1 September (Saturday) / 2 September (Sunday)
