Hi All,

any news on this? Is there a consensus now about the exact location for Events?

I don't mind moving things around, but we really need a definite
decision where Events should be located, else we will continue to have
it in different pages and the confusion continues :(

I can't remember having seen any meeting or decision about this,
although there was supposed to be a BoF at Akademy (which I certainly
missed, or did it even happen?), so some feedback would really be

Regards, Myriam

PS. Why do we have different mailing lists for promo and for events? I
must have missed something else here, too
