Re: Fwd: Reminder: FOSDEM CrossDesktop DevRoom 2013 - Call for Talks


If CrossDesktop DevRoom is THE place for cross-desktop entente, then
why have I seen no discussion about this event on any FreeDesktop mail
forum?  I only notice GNOME mailing lists in the current cc:list, or am
I missing something?

What FreeDesktop forum is even supposed to be used for announcing events
and activities? Would this be freedesktop freedesktop org, platform freedesktop org (which hasn't seen but 3 emails since 2005) or
maybe Distributions freedesktop org?
