Also i want to remember GNOME Hackers training meetings in Chile as for
us is very hard to get some core hacker from GNOME in our country we
started a small meetings just to show how to be involved in GNOME,
actually we've made more than 10 meetings in the last two years. Our
main idea was to prepare a group of hackers to be ready when some core
hacker like Federico will come to Chile, so they'll be ready to
understand advanced knowledge, the idea has been changing and today
Colleges and Universities are asking to GNOME Chile for dates to get a
meeting in their campus, the next one will be in November.

This kind of initiative should be supported by the Foundation and the
board also could be replied arround the world, at least people from
GNOME Hispano did it.
