Hello All,

There is a possibility. We have an A.S.B.L. in Belgium, the AEL
(Association Electronique Libre). The purpose of the association :
it's to support Libre software and Libre concept in general.
All the activists are clearly engaged in free software.

We have multiple project in Belgium and Luxembourg around free software

Is there a possibility to create a local chapter for Belgium with the
fsfeurope via the A.E.L. ?

How is it working ? is there a procedure on savannah ?
