By the way, have you considered announcing it on the dot or at least on 
kde-devel? Of course the date needs to be fixed first.

kde-devel means reaching to non-edu KDE contributors: perhaps some KDE people 
not too far from Paris would like to meet us and maybe give us a helping 
hand. Many don't read the kde-edu list.

The Dot means reaching to non-contributors. It could give some motivated users 
not too far from Paris an occasion to get started as KDE-Edu contributors. 
More people is always better.
