Also, this has a bit of a reputation in the "geek circles" in Germany.

Maybe both is not quite necessary, you know how that goes, people come
to you afterwards if they are interested. OTOH: if enough people end up
volunteering, sure why not.

I'm actually interested here to see what our Elder Developers have to
say. Maybe one of them can make it, that'd be a hit.
As mentioned on IRC, I'm quite near and could lend a hand; my German is
not perfect, but it's alright (as long as I don't have to understand
extremely thick Chemnitzer accents :)).
Let's see how much interest this gathers and what can be done from that,
did you have any particular topic in mind?
