The Extremadura meetings are over, but a similar opportunity has been
proposed by CETRIL (and somewhat not enough advertised) in Soissons
(France). The coming session (in February) is dedicated to Debian-edu:
but is not strictly limited to it (I feel there are many skills that
can be shared between CDD-like distributions). They still have (many)
places left for those who might be interested in.

But nothing really science related so far. Who will be there?

Not being registered there, I do not know whether something related to
science has been proposed (but I have not seen anything such on this

http://www.rmll.info/ (no English version so far, it seems, sorry)
There will be a science topic (2 days). I am involved in its
organisation and will send a call for contributions on this list in
the coming days.

There is a possibility (not yet confirmed) of a CETRIL DevCamp similar
to the one mentioned above for Debian-edu (30 people) around LSM/RMLL
event (week before or after July 14th). Would any people of
Debian-science be interested in participating in such a coding event?

Personally, I am (slowly and) silently working on subjects as live-cd
production with debian-live, archive management for debian-science
packages that are not (yet) in the official archive and packaging.

With respect to the above events, I will attend Fosdem and try to free
myself to go to the Debian-edu DevCamp. I am unsure whether Debconf is
of any interest with respect to science related matters (I had no time
to propose a talk there). And I will try to make the LSM / RMLL
science topic an attractive event (any suggestions welcome, the
earlier, the better).  :-)
