Hello World,

This is the official call for sessions for the FOSDEM 2013
cross-distributions devroom. As in previous years, any session relating
to distributions development is welcome. Since this is an opportunity
for different distributions to cooperate, we're specifically looking for
sessions that are of interest to people from multiple distributions;
however, if you have something interesting to talk about that is of more
interest to just one particular distribution, that is certainly welcome

Sessions can be things like talks, roundtables, or BoFs; anything is
welcome. However, please note that for roundtables or BoFs, I'd still
like one or more people to step up as moderator, who'll be listed as
'speaker' on the schedule.

If you want to hold a session in the distributions devroom, please send
an email to the distributions at lists.fosdem.org mailinglist, containing
the following information:
- Your name
- A (short) bio
- (optionally) a picture
- A title for the talk
- A description of the talk (just a paragraph or two will do)
- Your desired timeslot duration (30 or 60 minutes)
- If you already have that information, your availability during the
  FOSDEM weekend to help us schedule the sessions.

And this no later than december 20th, 2012, which is two months less one
week from now. That isn't a lot of time, so please don't hesitate too
long in proposing a session.

Please also forward this call for sessions to your appropriate
distribution-specific mailinglist(s), so we can actually get some
sessions to appear.


Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
