It's a good idea to share the booth with other Apache projects: we can 
see at ApacheCon who is going to be at FOSDEM.

There is another opportunity not to miss: we can propose a (technical) 
talk about Apache OpenOffice as a Main Track Talk, see the same page. 
Deadline 31 October. It would be good if Juergen, or another developer, 
took the occasion to show something about OpenOffice and the challenges

Right, Louis, but we can start right after the ApacheCon; this will 
still allow to have one month for the Call for Talks and another month 
for finalizing the schedule before the deadline (10 January). And the 
marketing list is indeed the right one.

This is an unresolved issue, discussed in another thread; but actually 
we will spend less than foreseen for helping participants to ApacheCon 
EU, so we might allocate some money for FOSDEM; of course this doesn't 
solve the problem that the current fund for events is not going to be 
replenished; but there's a thread for it.
