I had the flu and was quite busy otherwise lately, but finally I have a
first version of the ASF brochure which I'd like some feedback on (and
pointers to any typos I may have made). I've had to come up with some
text on my own to fit everything in the cramped space. Since I'm not
natively English speaking, there's a good chance that there's some
suboptimal text in places. Other text I have copied from our website.
I'm open for any comments. The goal is to have it ready by the end of
the week so there's still a chance to print a few sheets for OpenExpo
next week.

I ended up doing this in XSL with FOP. Sadly, Scribus only got in my way
but FOP was very cooperative. ;-)

BTW, does anybody who is planning to come to OpenExpo on Wednesday have
access to a decent color laser that he/she could print the brochures on
once the thing is ready? I assume we probably don't need more than 30-40
pieces (although I can always be wrong about that).
