Hm, must have been a false positive from the spamfilter. I'll have a 
look at that.

Having more demands for rooms than we can handle has been an issue for 
some years now. We have been looking at options to increase the number 
of rooms, but that would become unmanageable, and unpractical too, as we 
already use all the rooms in the buildings we rent from the ULB. So that 
would mean having another building, more isolated from the event, staff 
to man that building, etc.
I am truly sorry, but there's just nothing left anymore. All I can say 
is that I hope you will have one for next year...

Kind regards,


FOSDEM 2007 - 23&24/02
