Hi Yves,

Thanks for this wonderful update from the OSGeo-fr chapter, wow lots of 
activity.  Please be sure to submit your events so that they 
"automagically" appear on the list at http://www.osgeo.org/events (see 
steps at http://www.osgeo.org/events/submit_events); also keep me posted 
on the dates for FOSS4G-fr, definitely :)  Thank you for all your work.

My sincere condolences to everyone in OSGeo-fr and around your country, 
as the recent tragic events must be difficult to deal with.  Be strong.
