FOSDEM aims to be a technical conference.  We want to enable developers of
open source software to colaborate.  For people wanting to discuss philosophy,
we organize a beer event on Friday evening before the conference.

The purpose of this mailing list is to provide information and guidance to
people interested in attending FOSDEM.

We have learned (at length) that discussions about philosophy and other fuzzy
topics on mailing lists get very very long and add zero value to people who
are interested in attending FOSDEM.

Save it for the beer event.

 - Philip
