Thanks for setting this list up Gabor
I am president of the Open Source Developers' Club - which started as YAPC::AU,
and then grew, adding PHP, Python and others until it became OSDC.
This year, although OSDC seemed to be a success, it really missed promoting the
roots - If you look at the YAPC list - http://www.yapc.org/old-events.html -
you won't even see it there.
This is a bit of an oversight. I think we spent so much time concentrating on
the collaborative part, that we forgot to promote the individual parts.
It probably depends a lot on the individual conference organisers (I am now the
president of the parent group - mainly we are looking after the money and
choosing the next conference).
Anyway, OSDC has run for 6 years in Australia and 11 conferences globally - so
the formulae is working nicely. We would encourage to you to use, steal,
borrow, collaborate with us.

http://www.osdc.com.au/ (really the Australian specific site now)
But mainly I am emailing because I know that next year I want to personally
promote Perl more, in one form or another. Thus making sure it is not lost when
non-Perl people run the conference.
