Excuse my ignorance, but what is GUADEC BOF.

"GUADEC is the main conference for GNOME users, developers, foundation leaders, individuals, governments and businesses worldwide. " [1]

GUADEC usually include several activities. There are several talks about GNOME, but also hackfests, etc. A BOF [2] is basically a meeting held at a conference, where several people interested on a specific topic join and talk/hack/etc about it. There are several BOFs this year on GUADEC (Oliver already pointed this link [3]). It is good to organize them in advance in order to be sure that you have a room where everybody can met, and as Oliver is doing, if you want to have some extra activities there.

Sorry for the late answer, and again, thanks for being so interested on
organizing an accessibility bof.

Last time you raised the GUADEC BOF, there were some uncertainty about
the people going or not to GUADEC this year. We talked about that on one
of the weekly meetings. If memory serves me well, at that point we knew:
  * Alejandro Piñeiro: not going
  * Joanmarie Diggs: not going (or at least, really unlikely)
  * Mike Gorse: unknown
  * Joseph Scheuehammer: not going
  * Juanjo Marin: unknown
  * Magdalen Berns: going (not sure if present at the meeting, but
confirmed her presence on this thread).

And note that I just wrote down the people at that meeting, but everyone
interested would be welcome.

So please, could people confirm or not their presence at the GUADEC?

Best regards
