Subject: [SFD-discuss] Software Freedom Day: supplies registration extended
	until Saturday!

   Hi software freedom enthusiasts,

   Due to a rush of late registrations, and a bit of extra schwag* that we
   got hold of, registration to receive supplies for Software Freedom Day has
   been extended until 23:59 UTC on Saturday 19 July.

   That means that teams that if your team is registered before that time,
   you'll be getting T-shirts, balloons, stickers, CDs and a few other
   goodies to spice up your Software Freedom Day celebration. You can
   register a team by visiting
   [1]http://cgi.softwarefreedomday.org/register.html and filling in the
   registration form. You'll need to read the instructions at
   [2]http://softwarefreedomday.org/StartGuide, and you'll also need to
   create a wikipage on our site for your team.

   Please go and check out the map of registered teams
   ([3]http://cgi.softwarefreedomday.org/map.shtml) - see if you can fill in
   the blanks on the map by forwarding this email to friends, colleagues,
   fellow software freedom enthusiasts and community mailing lists in those

   This deadline extension is only available while our schwag stocks last -
   if we run out, you're still welcome to register your team to be part of
   SFD but you won't be offered team supplies. Sorry, it's not our fault:
   shipping supplies to almost 100 countries requires us to set a firm
   shipping deadline.

   And for those who haven't participated in SFD before:
   Software Freedom Day is a worldwide celebration of Free and Open Source
   Software (FOSS), taking place this year on Saturday 20 September 2008. Our
   goal in this celebration is to educate the worldwide public about of the
   benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home,
   and in business -- in short, everywhere! The non-profit company Software
   Freedom International coordinates SFD at a global level, providing
   support, giveaways and a point of collaboration, but volunteer teams
   around the world organize the local SFD events to impact their own

   Good luck with preparations for your SFD!

   Board member, Software Freedom International

   * Schwag (for those unfamilar with the term) is "team supplies", like
   stickers, balloons and badges!
