It's important for Cetril to help community project and to help developers to organise meetings. So, it's possible to change the dates to try to find the better period. So, If you prefer we can talk about that during an online meeting to be able to define the date for the january meeting.On Thursday 7.

A lot of the voluntary developers, translators and teachers are busy working with other things throughout the week. By making the gathering over a long weekend, contributors can get two-three days off instead of five days. Thats more easy to negotiate with our employer. I'll suggest this days: Wednesday (travel to dev.camp in the afternoon), Thursday (some will travel early to dev.camp), Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday (travel in the afternoon), Tuesday (some stay over and travel early). This introduces flexibility that will get more developer / translators / and other contributors to come. So thats my advice: include one weekend. I'll say that's impressive that 8 persons says they will join a whole week right after Christmas, a major holiday in most of European countries. When it comes to full week developer gatherings, most of them are done through the summer, when developers can use a week of their summer holliday. There are exceptions of course :) Best regards Knut Yrvin
The dev camp could be take between the 10th and the 16th of january.
