Arne, Axel and me talked about this to Luka at Fosdem - this problems seems
to be solved.

Same thing applies here: There seems to be just a misunderstanding. So the
workflow as I understood it is: Find an event, create a Wikipage, send
event-+wikilink to events@d.o and everything is fine. From there on the
event will be promoted and the organisation can happen in the wiki or via
mailinglist etc.

All in all I'm not opposed to the idea, but I would like to see the
position more as "this is a person you can freely ask if you want to
oganize an event in $location - not as an active member trying to
coordinate events.
As for the german ares I'd bring up Alexander Wirt, even I he most likely
won't have time. He's doing the merch stuff for this area - so just for the
sake of completeness :)
