If we get sponsorship to cover the costs of venues (not food) of +500
people in Europe, perhaps we could get also sponsored venues for 100
people in the US...

No problem. Maybe the recently started GUADEC weekly update (see Planet)
is enough in some cases though.

Just to start marketing the audience of this list  ;)

Not only this, it's locale / warm up days. Spanish and Catalan
actibities are already planned but i.e. thos talked about the
possibility of a UK meeting and this weekend is perfect for that. Maybe
fr, de, it and others would also like to take advantage of this
opportunity. We are in the process of concretising a Fluendo social
event on Saturday or Sunday night. There is also a plan for a GNOME-KDE
football match (US: soccer, no helmets nor cheerleaders).

We are about to define packages for the most economic lodgers: youth
hostel and camping. More next week.

The sysadmin team is assisting us on most of our requests (there is a
PHP server upgrade request, I guess this is more complex). But the
website and the registration falls completely into the GUADEC
organisation responsibility. More next week as well.
