FOSDEM 2008 Announcement

FOSDEM 2008 will take place at at the Université Libre de Bruxelles, in Brussels on the 23/24. Feb 2008.

This page is for organizing GNUstep's participation in the event. This includes the organization of a developer meeting the Friday before FOSDEM.

Note: this year we will have just a small stand/booth but no on-site devroom (see Sun hotel). So, we have to even better prepare our stand (product demos, leaflets, T-Shirts etc.)
