Nice to see some activity on this front!  I think it would be nice to
arrange a Dutch (and Belgian?) fsfe meeting sometime in the near
future.  That would give us a chance to meet and get to know each
other -- and to get more organised and discuss these kinds of things.
 Those of us attending FOSDEM could get together there (and make plans
for a -- larger? -- meeting in the Netherlands afterwards).
