Sure; 'patches welcome'.  I guess I'm not as sure of your 
hope/assumption; I had the sense from Benjamin Henrion's email that a 
previous patch was rejected, and I wanted to know if the patch was 
rejected because it was incomplete and ill formed, or if such a patch 
will never be taken in :-/.

So let's make that my basic question:  if a group of volunteers built a 
name tag generating web site, and arranged the production and 
distribution of lanyards and blank name tags, would such an arrangement 
be accepted and affirmed?  Because it would require some integration 
with main stream FOSDEM (messaging on the web site, and room at info desks).

Cheers,

Jeremy
