[vlc-devel] [OT] Thoughts on the meeting date

The date is not important to me...
The most important issue for me is advance notice to do the admin work if I
want to come.

I just wonder:
* Why on a week-end
* Why free (you could introduce an optionnal non free tutorial or such)

Out of Topic: FOSDEM

Am I wrong in believing that at least some of the VLC member will be present
at the Fosdem 10th edition?

Maybe those comming on friday will also be there:

However I don't see a trace of Videoland stuff in the presentation and/or
lightning Talks...
Do you have a developper room reserved for you (in addition to the stand)?

It would be nice to know what to expect (who is comming? to do what? ...).
