Can anyone volunteer to coordinate Fedora's involvement in this event?
Andrew would like to know if Fedora is interested and start planning
I am _not_ volunteering to co-ordinate as I have little experience in
organising such events. I am also two hours drive away from Montreal
(in Sherbrooke), but I can provide basic gruntwork on the relevant days
if someone else needs assistance.
