I was pleased to see Maurice and Mark there. After a bit Rainer and,
uhm, that other German guy joined us and then Eric with 2 fresh Dutch
faces. Maurice talked about the Overheid & ICT thing. We pondered a bit
about possibilities on May 5th and potential other events. The
importance of this mailing list was stressed. There was talk of a
meeting in Nijmegen, which some of the German folk might join. Maurice
took some notes, so he can probably fill in the blanks and maybe even
produce detailed minutes. :p

Then Rainer introduced me to some Belgians, immigrants and
Euro-persons. Guys/gals, if you're on the list already, say hi. There
were suggestions for a Belgian meeting in Brussels, helping the
software freedom in education effort and lending a hand to the RMLL
event. I should have put something on paper, but I believe those were
the main points.

Cool. I stopped buying that a while ago, though. Will those articles be
available online perchance?
