we are having a great time, here on Foss4g, and the atmosphere is just
full of ideas, flowing in the air, waiting for someone, who pick them.
To make it short, we started think about one of Foss4g Conference
* possibly support other affiliated conferences

There has been no official body setuped yet. But we would like to
organize first event during May 2012. For organization purposes, we

I already started to work within the wiki , were I hope to put some
informations about the event. And we would like to put initial committee
together for this conference-cee event, which would guarantee the
continuity from year to year asap (time is running).
So, do you support the idea? How about the name "Foss4g-CEE"? Any
conditions - financial, organizational, ... ? Any tips and hints, how to
approach with the decision process?
