Hi Emmanuel,
Congratulations for your success, and thank you for having been in Berlin. 
You're right: To have own advertising material is clearly one of the priorities 
for WMCH, we should follow the neighbouring chapters which really have done a 
great job.

> Dear Wikimedians,

> fact, we merge both boots: people of Wikimedia explaining what is our 
> offline solution and me explaining about projects of Wikimedia Deutschland.
