GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe
since 2000. GNOME is the Free Software project that drives the user
interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones
to laptops, or personal media centers. This get-together event is the
world's largest gathering of those involved with the free desktop or
mobile user interfaces. GUADEC 2012 is expected to draw hundreds of
attendees who will discuss and direct the future of the GNOME project.

GNOME.Asia 2012 Official Announcement


Hosting GNOME.Asia 2012
June 9-15, 2012
Hong Kong

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Hong Kong has been
selected as the venue of our upcoming GNOME.Asia 2012. GNOME.Asia 2012
follows the release of GNOME 3.4, helping to bring new desktop
paradigms that facilitate user interaction in the computing world.  It
will be a great place to celebrate and explore the many new features
and enhancements to the groundbreaking GNOME 3 release and to help
make GNOME as successful as possible.

Hong Kong is well known for being one of the largest cities in Asia,
with a thriving cultural scene, solid infrastructure, and robust
public transportation system.   Many countries have a visa-free period
for travel with Hong Kong and the city has well integrated
international connections. We believe that hosting the event in Hong
Kong will bring the spotlight on GNOME and make an impact locally,
regionally and internationally in terms of business and community
building.   Aside from being a business capital, Hong Kong is also
well known as a tourist destination that is famous for its food,
shopping and many attractions.

Potential sites for the conference are the Breakthrough Youth Village
Campsite and City University of Hong Kong, and reasonable rates for
accommodations have been arranged. We are currently evaluating the
best possible dates for the event, and should be able to announce it
within the coming week.

The GNOME Foundation has a new home

As a follow-up of [1]:

It's an honour for me to announce that the Foundation's website has 
been completely migrated to gnome.org. We've been working on this for 
a few months now, but the result is simply awesome.

That said, I would like to thank Vinicius DePizzol (vdepizzol) for all 
his work and contributions to make this happen. His devotion and 
willingness to contribute to the GNOME Foundation are amazing and 
working with him during all these months has been a pleasure for me, 
he's a superb contributor and most of all a great guy. 

The new Foundation's website can be reached at the following link:

http://www.gnome.org/foundation

while the new voting area is now available at:

http://vote.gnome.org

Please report any broken link or error to <membership-committee <at> gnome.org>
or by opening a bugzilla ticket against the website product. [2]

cheers,

Andrea

P.S redirects are working properly, so http://foundation.gnome.org 
will now take to the brand new website.
