Re: FUDCon Proposal

Hi Greg,

personally I hopefully think you only have a view to Northern America
and not to the rest of this globe ...

Because we in Europe need also to have a opportunity to have a FUDCon
here ...

And I also can tell you the date: Should be around Linuxtag Germany in
2008 (2008-05-28 till 2008-05-31)!
So it's very near to that FUDCon you're planing again in Boston; or
isn't it possible to have also one here?

Be aware; it all takes also a lot of money :-(
