We are in finalizing discussions with University of Parma de Mallorca who 
has said that they would lend us their GNU/Linux room for the last week in 
January - when we planned to have the sprint. That would be week 4, 
23-29th of January. We are waiting to get this confirmed in just a few 

A sprint announcement will be sent out next week.

But Brussels sprint and/or a Saarbruecken event sounds like a good idea - 
we need to discuss and fit this to the schedule.
