Hi guys

I just wanted to talk a little about the FSFE fellowship conference in
Italy next month.  It's going to be happening in the same venue as
SFSCon and will take place on the 11th of November.

Everything is happening in Bolzano.  That's a town in North Italy.  More
details can be found here: http://sfscon.it/when-where

The basic schedule of the fellowship meeting is already set.  The day
will start with a workshop by Werner about the fellowship crypto-card.
At 11am in the morning there will be a workshop on eZ Publish, the CMS
used on the fellowship website.  All the system hackers can get together
and be geeky.  Then we're going for lunch and (after a suitable overdose
of pasta) we'll get back together for a special announcement by FSFE, a
report by from FSFE team about everything that's happening in the
organisation and then...

...wait for it...

...there will be a special workshop where we'll get together and talk
about our emerging advocacy project.  We want to improve the material
available, to involve more fellows and to gather ideas for local Free
Software engagement.

Obviously this day is going to take a lot out of us.  The only rational
way to deal with the stress is to all get together for a massive dinner
where we'll try to eat everything in sight.

I do think this conference will be a great opportunity for everyone to
get to know everyone else.  Most of FSFE team will be available.  On a
personal level I'm also really excited about meetings fellows from
around Europe.

If you are intending to come to the conference let me know, especially
if you are interested in the advocacy workshop (as I'll be doing that).
 I'd like to have input about topics we might need to cover.
