OSGeo & Qgis events is a good idea (although I've never been). I loved
Johan's OSGeo theme day at FOSDEM. But Bas is right, we need some quiet
time together. We could investigate a Brussels hotel/hackspace either
side of FOSDEM?

If we are mostly European, Andreas suggested Linux Tage in Chemnitz to
me in the past. I don't know how good that is for BoF time.

FSCONS in Goeteborg, Sweden was good last year. Easy for me to get to,
and much smaller (plenty of rooms to occupy).

Should we jot the known events on the wiki with dates and list who is
thinking of going?
