When do we want FSCONS 2011? Around November sounds sensible, but we need to make sure it doesn't conflict with so much else.
We are leaning towards the date 11/11/11 and unless we hear strong reasons against that date it will soon be officially accepted as the date for FSCONS 2011.
Please put stuff that could compete with FSCONS here, so we get a view of what dates to avoid...
Who wants to help out with the organisation? People needed for everything from drupal development or marketing to moving furniture.
In fact, the conference is depending heavily on participation from the community and voluntary co-operation. FSCONS is the sum of what we do together.
Please read our FSCONS Manifest.
