I am still trying to catch my breath and the backlog of stuff to be done but finally I made it to this post.
Dirk, thanks for your time related to FOSDEM and detailed report!

I was trying to update/maintain the wiki page http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events with similar information but IMHO we should unite them somehow. > --> I was thinking of introducing a european "pool" of event material > to be passsed along among workshops and yapc's. > Also once the current banners have served at CEBIT, could they be > passed on the nearby perl mongers so it could find its way to the next > perl workshop? I took the banners with me so we will be able to use them on CeBit but I'd be more than happy to leave them in Germany and let people pass them around. We just need to decide who will take them. We just need to make sure they will be used a lot on the various events. BTW I think we should have a "Perl events stand" on YAPC::EU where we can explain what is this events group about. (or the Perl "marketing" in general). BTW I wrote a short blog post about it with some of the pictures of Erik included: http://szabgab.com/blog/2010/02/1266052953.html Gabor
