In fact, in this mailing list, we have some people interested by the 
organisation of a pycon.be, myself, for example ;-)

but I can organise an event alone, but I don't want to do it, because we 
are a community and I am looking for some members, I just want to see: 
"ok, Stephane, I am going to be with you for PyCon.be"

In fact, time, financial support and beer support ;-)

But sincerely, I need your help. In the near future, I am going to 
propose a volunteer survey for pycon.be and several Python meetups in 
Belgium. Brussels, Namen/Namur, Luik/Liege, Antwerpen/Anvers, Charleroi, 
Mons/Bergem, etc... 

For example, Didrik, excepted the financial support (thank you for the 
financial support, it's really important), how can you help us ? For 
example, 1 or 2 hours per weeks/months ?

And you, the other followers of this ML ?
