Booth attendants

Mageia booth will be in Building K, level 1, group B:

If you propose yourself as a booth attendant, that does not imply that you have to be there all day. The more people who volunteer, the less time a single individual must stay at the booth, so please do.
Please note, that we should have people at the booth, speaking French, English and - if possible - Dutch.

Annual General Assembly

As in the last four years, the General Assembly of the Mageia.Org Association will take place during FOSDEM.
In this General Assembly we will only do the Reviews of the last year, the elections for the positions on the board will take place after FOSDEM using the epoll electronic voting system, since not everyone will be able to attend the FOSDEM.

The topics for the General Assembly are:

  • General report about the association's last year (ennael)
  • Financial report
  • Discussion

The general assembly will happen on saturday at 16h in Building H room 3227.
