As Daniel already pointed out, there is quite some open-source 
development in the ham-radio community.

Anycase, my goal is not to make FOSDEM a ham-radio event. There already 
exist quite a few of hamventions so there is shortage of that.

The big difference is that FOSDEM is a DEVELOPER conference, which is -I 
think- something that the ham-radio community does not have. My idea is 
to try to get people together who are involved in actual development of 
open-source ham-radio related software and hardware projects and focus 
the talks on subjects of actual software and hardware development.
As far as I know, this is something that does not yet exist and would 
fit in the idea of FOSDEM.

Hence my qyestion, what are the requirements to start a devroom? Who 
should be contact for this?
