Hi all!

Cool to see already some items up on the schedule! Seems like every year
the planning starts earlier (thanks to you, Myriam)!

I will try to attend OpenExpo this time (I missed the last one), however
as you all know I'm having a tough time with the German language. I am
working on that however.
So if you feel an English / French speaking Ubuntero can be of some
help, I'll pre-book the date (need to make sure work+school scedules
don't conflict).

Regarding the release party, I'm also full of good will and am more than
willing to lend a hand :)

Straight to the hot topic: should we schedule two release parties this
year as well? One in the German-speaking part and one in the
French-speaking one?

Hope you all had a happy new year and a good rest!
