Dear $ALL, As stated in the subject line, X2Go: The Gathering 2020 - AKA V/RUS, the Virtual/Remote User Symposium - will take place at Stuttgart's hackerspace "shackspace", from Friday afternoon, 2020-09-18, to Sunday afternoon/evening, 2020-09-20.
X2Go: The Gathering is the annual event where users, admins, and developers (including the i18n volunteers) of X2Go meet face to face, to discuss current X2Go-related issues, fix open bugs, and have a good time getting to know each other. As there is some overlap between X2Go, Arctica, and orca e.V., you can expect to meet members of those groups as well. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year's X2Go: The Gathering will be a hybrid event with minimal on-site participation. We will be live-streaming the event, probably via Jitsi or BigBlueButton, and most likely we will have a YouTube stream going on as well. Links to the streams will be posted on <http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/events:x2go-gathering-2020> each day before the stream begins. *ATTENTION!* If you're interested in joining us *physically*, please contact <mailto:x2go-m...@baur-itcs.de> with the text "The Gathering" somewhere in the subject and bug me publicly on the X2Go-Project list if you don't receive a confirmation by e-mail after a day or two. We will not be providing accomodation this year (so if you cannot commute daily, you will have to look for a hotel/hostel room yourself), *but we still need your contact info* if you wish to take part in person, due to current Covid-19 health regulations. Also, you will be required to wear a non-medical everyday mask or comparable mouth and nose cover (of course, better masks like N95/KN95/FFP2/FFP3 are okay as well, as long as they do not have an exhalation valve), both when using public transport (and while waiting at the platforms/stops), as well as inside shackspace (you will likely be allowed to take the mask off while sitting at your desk, but we cannot guarantee that yet). For joining us *virtually*, you can join in any time, even on short notice, no sign-up required (it would still be nice if you'd let us know in advance, so we can make sure we have sufficient server and streaming capacity). We will be updating the Wiki page <http://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/events:x2go-gathering-2020> as more information becomes available. As this year's event is a hybrid event with minimal on-site participation, there is not really a need for event sponsorships. However, if you're a company that had planned to sponsor the event, we'd appreciate it if you'd redirect the money to some paid work on X2Go instead. A list of companies/individuals available for this can be found here: <https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:professional-support> CFD.direct, one of our long-time sponsors (<https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/doc:sponsors>), has already done so - and not only that, they have increased their funding from 700 EUR, as originally planned, to 1000 EUR, as you can read here: <https://wiki.x2go.org/doku.php/events:x2go-gathering-2020#sponsoring>. We will be pooling their sponsorship money with another donation by KLO Ingeniería Informática, so we will have 1100 EUR at our disposal. This money will be used to try to tackle the long-standing clipboard issues in the NX-libraries. If you want to add money into that pool, or want to sponsor other X2Go-related work, again, please see the above list of companies/individuals available for such work.
