Yes, for the past 5 years, the mailing list was really inactive. We had 
the PyBug, but the project is just dead, sorry for Jonas, but pybug.be 
is available and Jonas does not answer when we try to contact him.

About AFPy-Ro, the project of Ludovic (based on the AFPyRo in France), 
we have discussed together and Ludovic will close the mailing list of 
the AFPyRo, and will move the subscribers to belgium at python.org.

In fact, for me, it's not surprising, because I am a member of the 
workgroups of the EuroPython, Web, Financial, Support, Communication.

In fact, we need 5 actives members, just 5 not 40.

>Aren't we trying to run a marathon before learning to walk? 
Yes, we have to walk before trying a marathon, I do agree with you, but 
I have the experience with PythonFOSDEM (400 people during one day), ok, 
it's not an independent event (because we have FOSDEM with us) but it's 
an event with sponsors, speakers, goodies, web site, etc... and I think 
we can organise the same thing with the workgroups of EuroPython.

In fact, in EuroPython, there are 11 workgroups
* Web
* Financial Aid
* Program
* Administrative
* Communication (Blog, etc...)
* Support
* Code of Conduct
* etc...

And there is a special workgroup, the on-site team.

The on-site team has to find the good location for the events and 
contact the hotels and the catering etc...

For the rest, for the budget, we have to provide a call for proposal to 
the EuroPython board, with all the details about the pricing for the 
conference center, the wifi, the catering, etc... In fact, we have to 
compute an approximative budget for the entire event.

So, in this case, we can organise EuroPython 2019 and 2020, because the 
call for proposals of EuroPython 2017 (and maybe 2018) is finished.

Have you some questions ?
