I'm sorry that I didn't plan it earlier.  This year COSCUP decided to let
open source communities apply for their own tracks and can have several
hours to plan their own sessions.  It's the first time they try this way
and I think it may be good to have someone from TDF to give a talk and if
possible, to arrange you to meet with the directors in NDC Taiwan.
