Hi, Ray! Sorry for the delay, I'm still reading some email from the
early new year ;-)

FOSDEM could have been a good choice, but it is too late. At least we
in Bitergia are already scheduled, and the combination of FOSDEM plus
CHAOSSCon don't allow for more time.

Another opportunity could be around ICSE. It is the major software
engineering conference, this year in Gothenburg (Sweden).


At least for Bitergia, that's not too far away, so moving there for a
couple of days could be doable. Maybe some of us who are in Academia
are coming to ICSE anyway, so maybe that would be a good venue for us
too, including those in US/Canada. And maybe we can get a room from
some of the Universities there.

Very likely we will have a CHAOSCon US around OSS Summit NA, too, in
Vancover (Canada)


A bit more difficult for us in Europe, but at least some of us are
planning to come to it, so that could be another option.

What do others think?
