I should have not said calendar but agenda :-) Here is the
first draft I produced:
The XML source is at
I have a few questions related to this:
- Except for the 1st september 2001 milestone, I was not
able to find out what are the next events that should be
watched. Could you point me to a document that list them ?
- I've not been able to spot documents related to lobbying
activity except: petition, consultation, jp smets reports
(where can I find an history of what happened with this
document ?). Anyone could, in theory, get an appointment
with EU officials on the subject of Software Patents. Did
someone do that ? Where can I find a history of such lobbying
- How can I integrate the agenda I built into petition.eurolinux.org ?
Is it desirable, useless, too complex, not important ?
- I found here and there references to official positions
taken by european governments on the subject of Software Patents
but I could not find pointers giving proofs of such positions.
Could you point to a specific document ?
