Indeedy, I was notified by FOSDEM staff about this, and will note that
the ASF has formally requested a stand at FOSDEM 2016.

Time will tell what sort of stand we'll get (how big etc), but we should
plan ahead and _assume_ we'll get two tables (might get one, might get
three, but let's assume two).

This will require 3-4 volunteers at most times (not to speak of endless
amounts of swag to give away), so I would imagine we'd need at least
double that in available people, so as to do it in shifts.

Depending on the number of projects that are interested in a presence at
FOSDEM, we'll likely do a rotation, so that each project get N hours of
fame at the stand. FOSDEM has notified us that they are really limited
on space this time around, due to the huge interest in this from FOSS
communities, so if we can help them by rotating a bit, that would work
out for everyone. Having been to previous FOSDEMs, I can also say with
some certainty, that you won't risk getting the "boring time slot", as
the stands are pretty much always crowded.

With regards,
