Thanks for this Fabian. Hopefully lots of people will sign up to volunteer
or attend. I will be going to MozFest for the first time this year and am
very pleased to be speaking on the programme. There will actually be quite
a few Wikimedia staff there as a number of people will be coming over from
Germany and I believe Katherine Maher (Wikimedia Foundation ED) will be
giving a keynote.

I'm afraid I won't be able to make either of the East London meet ups but I
look forward to seeing some of you at the end of October!
