I had a look at the Swisslinux web site. A lot of great stuff!
Unfortunately only in French. I missed a link to a mailing list. Do
you have an open mailing list?
I also noticed you had only 15 members in 2006. If you want more
members and activities I have some suggestions:
1. Make it more open (mailing list etc). Open the wiki so people can
just register and start translating if and when they want. It's in the
free software and open-source spirit to be totally transparent and
2. The membership fee is a threshold that puts people off, even if
it's an symbolical sum. Are you obliged (as a legal association) to
demand a fee? Is it otherwise necessary? I read that the main reason
is the domain hosting. How much is that? (I only saw 45 CHF for last
year). I think you can find sponsors that will do or finance this for
you. I am willing to donate myself, if you drop that member fee. Lots
of people like free beer, and many are willing to give free beer as
3. Is the general assembly tomorrow open for non-members? Are there
means to participate remotely (video conference/streaming, IRC)? If
yes and yes, I would like to join and present my ideas. Otherwise I
hope you can mention this in the meeting.
Good luck and all the best,
PS. will there be a SwissLinux stand at OpenExpo?
