Could you or Andre or Phillipe get into some of the specifics that you
think would be required on the technical side? This is what I put on the
pad for this but it needs to be checked and expanded :
> *ACTION : agree on the text that we want to use and make it fit for
> The most obvious and easiest solution would be to directly re-use
> https://jesigne.lepacte.be/ (FR, I don't know if there's a NL version
> available?). We would just need to update the header (which references the
> 2012 elections) and figure out who will collect signatures. OTOH there is
> already another pact set up for the European elections (
> http://freesoftwarepact.eu/ ) and using two different pacts runs the risk
> of creating confusion and diluting our efforts. One possible solution to
> this problem would be to use both pacts but create a single "hub" webpage
> where each candidate will be able to click on a button according to the
> elections he is running for and would automatically be redirected to the
> appropriate website.
