  1. MattJ

    We should start thinking about printed materials for FOSDEM

  2. MattJ

    I got a bunch of stuff printed last time. This was partly stuff I wrote myself, and partly posters and things that others sent me. I have them organized somewhere so I can share a link in a bit.

  3. MattJ

    I'm saying this now because I'm going to be busy preparing other stuff for FOSDEM this year, so I will likely have less time and probably can't put in the same amount of time and effort I did for this last year.

  4. MattJ

    I think I also made notes about what printed materials remained at the end of the weekend, so I'll look for those and we can come up with a list of things to make new (e.g. 2024 newsletter) or reprint from last year

  5. MattJ

    I'm happy to take on the actual printing again, but only if the XSF approves the expense first

  6. MattJ

    There was unexpected push-back last year about whether the XSF should pay for printed materials for specific projects

  7. MattJ

    So I ended up printing it all at my own expense, which I can't afford to do again

  8. Kris

    Let's see if we still have some from joinjabber.org

  9. Kris

    I think the conversejs developer also had some left overs that he was willing to send.

  10. Kris

    Maybe the prose.org people are interested to launch their new client on fossdem?

  11. Kris

    Might be good timing.

  12. Kris

    How is the accommodation situation in Brussels during fossdem usually? Easy to find a cheap hotel near by?

  13. Kris

    pep. still has some stickers and flyers he could send to someone that goes to fossdem.

  14. Kris

    I might go but not sure yet.

  15. pep.

    I have some flyers left yeah, in french, for jj.o and snikket. And I have plenty of jj.o stickers

  16. pep.

    I may send it via the Link Mauve post services, if it doesn't fail :-°

  17. pep.

    MattJ, Kris, https://bouah.net/files/XMPP-promotion-material/ just in case. Stuff I got from you Matt + JJ stuff and FR translations

  18. emus

    Kris: can you reach out?

  19. Kris

    I don't have direct contact to the prose.org people if you mean those?

  20. Kris

    I think the movim dev knows them privately

  21. Kris

    But should be easy enough for the XSF to send them a message, no?

  22. cal0pteryx

    prose.org had more website re-brandings than releases.

  23. Kris

    Well, their github looks like they are close to a release though

  24. singpolyma

    Their target was always end of this year and yeah it seems like might be getting close

  25. cal0pteryx

    It was end of '22 last year ;)
