LinuxPR: Gnustep, Mozilla, KDE, PHP and Gnome to hold developers meetings during FOSDEM Conference

“Brussels, Belgium ­ December 17, 2001 ­ The
FOSDEM orgnization is pleased to announce that the Gnustep,
Mozilla, KDE, PHP and Gnome will have developers meetings in
Brussels during the FOSDEM meeting that will take place 16 and 17
February 2002.

The goal of this GNUstep developers session is to get to known
each other (human networking doesn’t do any harm, exchange our
experience and knowledge, learn about unknown aspects of GNUstep
(there are still things you don’t know, do you ?), speak about
where we are and where we want to go. And, above all, have fun! All
the leading developers will attend this forum so this is a great
opportunity to learn more about GNUstep right from the source. The
suggested conferences are not expected to be a “one-to-many” kind
of talk but rather something like an introductory talk by the
speaker for a couple of minutes and then an open discussion with
the other developers. Said Dennis Leeuw from the Gnustep project
“Raphaël contacted me last year to help him to organize the
first edition of the FOSDEM. I helped it because I knew that the
idea behind FOSDEM was really to promote the Free Software spirit.
The organisation of so many developers meetings confirm that I was
right. Think Free!” said Damien Sandras from the GnomeMeeting

‘We are honored that main Free Software projects have decided to
have a developers meeting during the FOSDEM event. It was really an
amazing surprise when some of the main Free Software projects asked
us if it would be possible to havea developers meeting during the
event. For the FOSDEM organization it is the recognition that the
directions chosen by the FOSDEM are aligned with what can expected
from such an event. The FOSDEM’s goal is to build community
programs to support development in key technology areas for both
Free and Open Source Software, as well as outreach programs to
introduce both individuals and corporations to Free Software
development and the benefits of Free Software solutions,’ said
Raphel Bauduin, one of the FOSDEM organizers.”
