we have booked a CeBIT booth together with FrODeV, but to be honest, despite lots of calls for action, the preparations are not really moving forward.

I have not seen anyone working on creating or updating English materials, and organize that they are printed in time. In a nutshell, for international visitors, we right now simply have nothing at all to show or give away. :-(

Plus, at FOSDEM I discovered, quite to my surprise, that so far just a few people from TDF are going to attend. Are people aware that such a booth also needs to be staffed, otherwise the impression we create is rather bad? :-) Plus, I thought we wanted to have some international representatives there as well.

Just wanted to raise awareness again, since I'm not too overly happy with these developments. To be honest, looking at the current participation rate, it would have been better to maybe not have a booth at all. Better not being there, rather than with a bad impression.

Sorry for the dramatic words, but I hope I could wake up some people. ;-)
