At least, we will need a simple banner (an X-banner or a roll-up banner) 
and a few hundreds (500-1000) of the English flyers prepared by Drew. I 
can take care of ordering and delivering to FOSDEM. But then the 
materials should be given to someone who regularly attends events and 
travels by car, like Mechtilde and Michael.

A budget of 150 EUR will cover the expenses. It is quite likely that we 
will spend less (for example, I received an offer for banner+500 flyers 
at 100 EUR, even though I haven't been able to check some details yet), 
but since printing 1000 flyers costs only 15 EUR more than printing 500, 
I would keep some margin to be able to pick the most convenient option.

I would be able to prepare a quick banner design (orb+logo). But I'm 
putting Michael Acevedo in CC since we still need to have a real vector 
version (in any format: SVG, AI, EPS...) of the OpenOffice logo. By the 
way, the banner size I'm investigating is 60x160 cm if anyone wants to 
prepare the design.
