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 http://groups.google.de/group/gnu.gnustep.discuss/browse_frm/thread/852d2f0686d1e64e/cf6d877685630896 shows a lot of interest in such a meeting.

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

Cost

We hope that we can keep accomodation cost low. 85 CHF per person with "demi pension" (breakfast and dinner) for workshop participants.

The accomodation is shared, but definitely better than the youth hostel. There is one apartment with four beds, two rooms with double beds and two singles available at this time.

This is a family run small hotel, which is well kept. The food is simple but good (large buffet breakfast). The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the narrow gauge railway station. It has ADSL internet connection (wireless) available for us to use. The breakfast room (bright north east mountain view) will be available for our workshop.

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!
