Aw... We would miss you!

In any case... This year's stand was a bit bare, and though I were there, I 
got injured and could only be at the stand on Saturday, which sucked. But 
Fosdem is still a place where we as KDE should be.

So... 

Could you please share with me what needs to be done to get a stand? I guess 
that desktop devrooms are a thing of the past, but the stand was still well-
visited this year.

Also, for everyone else reading this:

* We need decoration for the stand. Cloths for the table. Do we have those? We 
should have vertical banners designed and printed: I would like one for kde as 
a whole, one for krita + kdenlive, one for plasma -- three would cover the 
backside of the table, and obviate the necessity to plaster the window with 
tape. Can KDE e.V. pay for those?

* We need volunteers to be there. Booth duty is fun, though this time we 
should take care to make sure it doesn't become the KDE insiders social event, 
but a place for people to meet our community. 

* Merchandise. I have, again, or maybe still, plenty of Krita stuff to hand 
out. We should have KDE stuff, too. For that, we need designs, we need money; 
I have a local printer who can do cool stuff and a big suitcase. We need a 
budget. 

I've also copied the usual page:
