Hello Konstantin A. Lepikhov

I'm not sure how this would work but if I can be of any help please contact
me. The only problem is I live in Holland and don't know the rules about
visas, this you would have to check.
I will be attending FOSDEM with a college on both days.

Terece Gilligan

Subject: [FOSDEM] Q: FOSDEM visit from Russia


I'm would like to visit FOSDEM but never been in Europe before. So it's good
time to do it now :) I'm planning to take a week vacation and do the road
trip by Schengen area. According infos from Belgium FPS Foreign Affairs site
(http://www.diplomatie.be/en/default.asp) and our russian site
(http://www.belgium.ru/visa.php3) there are three variants for visiting
Belgium and Schengen:

1) travel visa
2) individual visit by invitation
3) business visit by invitation

As I'm understand 3) is not applicable for this case - FOSDEM organisators
doesn't have legal form for this. 1) case is good, but have restrictions -
I'm must reserve all hotels before travel (it's impossibe for road trip due
missing information for reservation) and must by travel in agency (and repay
for it). So 2) variant is best, but there is another problems - who is take
all response for me?

A few words about me and my contribution to FOSS:

My name is Konstantin Lepikhov, I'm a technical administrator/developer of
Russian Mozilla Team support forum (http://forum.mozilla-russia.org) and
