Hi folks,

I hope you have all have had a nice holiday season and that you are pegged for 
getting Europython on the way. I think it is time to hold a meeting to hash 
out a number of things.

I propose that we hold this meeting on Thursday (15 January) at 18.00 CET. The 
forum is as before the #europython IRC channel on freenode. Mail to the list 
if you don't know how to access this.

Please mail to the list if you plan to be there, or if you have problems 
making it. If this time is impossible for too many of the interested parties, 
we may have to reschedule.

Below is a list of things I would like to put on the agenda. Please add items 
to this list.

- Fixing of hours for the conference
- Preliminary selection of room sizes
- Perks for people giving talks/arranging conference
- Reconfirmation of tracks and track chairs
- Talks and papers - how to register
- Refereed paper track
- Participant registration - early bird, cutoff, on site - procedure, payment 
- Registration for lodging - procedure, payment
- Lunch - ambition, cost
- Coffee - ambition, costs
- Conference dinner - ambition, costs
- Responsible person for catering
- Information for participants - when and how much
- Website - responsibilites, division of labour, technology, design
- Marketing - press releases, forums
- Corporate participation, sponsorship
- Local volunteers

- Time planning - deadlines for when things have to be done
- Budget

It is good if people put together comments before the meeting on subjects they 
feel strongly about, or feel they have important input on. That way we will 
be more efficient while on line. I will try to send input on a number of 
subjects myself.
