so I was just made aware of
https://lists.fosdem.org/pipermail/fosdem/2019q4/002944.html where the
Brussels hackerspace (HSBXL) offered their space
(https://media.hsbxl.be/intro.webm) for groups like us.

Assuming this offer still stands, I believe a group of Debian
enthusiasts would like to come by from Wednesday to Friday before
FOSDEM. Do you think that would be possible so that we can "officially"
start planning this?

I suppose that would mean creating a wiki page and collecting info who
will be attending so that we all have a better idea what will be
happening there. Assuming that FOSDEM attracts *many* Debian developers
(more than 100?) I'd expect at least 23 people showing up on Wednesday
(though wouldn't be surprised about less, it's a work week after all) and
maybe 42 on Friday... and as I remember the space from this FOSDEM I
think even 42+23 people would fit.

What do you think, can we, shall we, do this?
