very interesting, thank you for sharing this.

I am not sure: You are also going to the commonsfest in Athens? Or you just
like to run a booth for the visit of RMS in Crete?

FSFE has a high interest to be represented on both occasions. We have a lot of
promotion material in English [1] and we have our GnuPG-Flyer [2] printable in

Now, given the short time, we have a problem to get the delivery in time.
However, we are able to send you two max-letters (a package needs at least 10
days, which will be too late).

That is, why I propose the following: We send you the max-letters with
leaflets and stickers (around 200 leaflets and 80 stickers). Please check our
PR-material [1] and let us know what you like to have.
Then, maybe you can print the Greek GnuPG-Leaflets directly in Greece? Can you
please check how much it would be to print these leaflets (210 × 396 mm)
locally in Athens or Crete (~500 pieces) ?

Furthermore, as soon as you let me know if we are talking about both events or
only the one in Crete, I can send a mail to all Fellows in Greece to let them
know what you are planning to do. In case they like to help out or support
you, they can get directly in contact with you. Sounds good? Then please send
me a draft that I can send around. Although you might be the only Fellow in
Crete, we definitely have some in Greece.

Please ask Rainer (in CC) directly, he is in charge of all merchandise
material and knows best what and how to do.

Thanks and best,
