I don't agree.

I makes IMO sense to promote our aktivities at FOSDEM on our website.
Maybe some friends of OpenOffice will see it and will go to FOSDEM
because of the program in the dev-room or to meet our people at the booth.

If only one of them becomes a submitter or supports us in another way
later effort has payed off.

FOSDEM is definitely no event to reach new users of an office suite but
one to recruit new volunteers.
