Hi all,

Last week Open World Forum took place in Paris. Apart from the keynotes,

for you. They are yet not complete, others will come in the next days.

thank you so much, everyone, for your great work on this, this is really 
fantastic and much appreciated! I know working through the text is quite 
tedious (so was writing it, rest assured :-) and even more glad I am it 
worked out.

Indeed, we should start collecting material right now, to have the 
writing and translating a bit more relaxed for the next year.

Thanks a lot, everyone, you rock!

Florian

Hello all,

There is only *one* chapter left to finish the translation of the annual

Please help to finish it, that could be done really quickly now and we
will have a nice document for derivative material.

Who will be the hero?
