Let's do it! Work meetings in Extremadura, Spain, during 2006

The deploy of Debian in Extremadura is astonishing. 
All those young men and women, old men and women, students, employed,
unemployed, people from both sexes (and I guess all genders), using
Debian there.

I think there is room for work there. I will definitely go. Last time,
December 2003, I learned a lot from both the Linex developers and the
people helping users use it, and the communities being created around it.

Subject: international Debian work meetings in Extremadura, Spain, during 2006

The good people of one of the larger Debian deployments in the
world (80k+ debian boxes) have generously offered to host a
number of work meetings for debian during 2006.

Please take your time to appreciate that generous gesture and
feel free to send a mail with a "Thank You! You rock!" to Dario
Rapisardi <dario at rapisardi dot org>.

These are the dates that we can have gatherings there:

- January 18-22.
- March 22-26.
- April 19-23.
- June 7-11.
- September 6-10.
- December 13-17.

Please contact me if you have a group active within Debian which
wants to meet and has a distinct goal (and description of it) for
that meeting. Feel free to create a wiki page for that purpose
and be prepared to write a report about the meeting afterwards
like seen for the recent debian-java meeting in Oldenburg.
For questions on how to run such a meeting we should put together
a "best practice" guide. Until that exists please ask someone who
is familiar with this. I can help to make contacts.

The Region of Extremadura will pay both housing, food and
travel for the working people (non-DDs qualify for that, too). We
currently plan for up to 20 europeans with cheap flights or we
need to find additional funding. There is ample space for work.
(If you feel inclined, please consider contributing to
http://wiki.debian.org/FriendsOfDebian as one possible way to a
steady income source.)

There is the option to have several work groups at one gathering,
and you can use the space also for shorter time (e.g. from friday
evening to sunday).

Extremadura is an i18n user, and for that reason would like to
attract and encourage i18n effords within debian by supporting
them. So if your team works in that area you will get priority
