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,
