Interesting point.

Not sure I agree that the lack of Free software is the (main) benefit of 
face2face meetings.  But heck, I am not a designer, so what do I know.

What I do know is that work on code also blossoms by meeting face2face.  
As does work on packaging code. And work on tuning the packaging of code 
- that last one IMO being the only actual thing we really should be 
doing here, besides encouraging everyone both here and in the rest of 
the FLOSS community to help us with the former underlying parts.

Please add to the wiki info (time, location) about those events and a 
short/long note on why it is relevant to Freedombox!

Would you perhaps be interested in organizing concrete "Debian sprints"?

More info on the concept here: http://wiki.debian.org/Sprints

@H?ctor: perhaps you would be interested to help out - with your 
experience in organizing sprints for Emdebian?

I would love to take time to join such sprints!

Maybe if I then do other tasks that clumsily try to draw fonts from 
scratch as you tried teach me last we met, it could even be beneficial 
to others that I participate ;-)
