Hi.

It seems we have a lot of focus on ACNA which is very very good.....but let
not forget that before that we have a little european event called FOSDEM.

We as AOO should not forget that event, since it is likely to attract more
AOO users than ACNA.

Ps. Is it about time to publish how many talks does AOO have at FOSDEM ?
