I’d like to know, what do you use everybody to be hosted there lowcost
and are there people willing to share/mutualize hostings?

Attending without having registered

Hi, I think registration delay passed and I still didn’t find the money
to pay it.

Is it allowed to still come without having registered while buying food
on itself without having to eat the catering food?

GHM 2016 program

Dear all,

This is a second call for participation for the GNU Hacker Meeting 2016
in Rennes (Brittany, France) from August 18-20 hosted by Inria.


The program for the first day is now available at
We still have a 2nd day to fill and I look forward to receiving more
proposals for GNU-ish presentations (preferably with title, abstract and
duration, send to ghm2016@...).


We also have a registration site up at

To avoid any confusion, if you are unable to afford the 50 EUR/day
registration fee, please just select the "refund" option and we'll
happily refund you if you do show up. The construction is really
primarily there to penalize those that register and then fail to show,
to avoid wasting food.  Those of you that are able to pay the
registration fee will mostly help us in providing better food options
and cover the cost of the trip to Mt. St. Michel on the 3rd day, or if
possible award travel stipends for those that would otherwise be unable
to attend.

If you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact the organizers:

[GHM] Suggested fixes for the web page footers


The GHM pages seem to be perpetuating an old version of the footer, and
in some of them the #content div doesn't close properly. The attached
diff fixes this and other minor problems.

If you agree with those changes but don't have time to apply them, I
will gladly do it.

Best regards,

Hi all,

I wanted to let you know that we'd be happy to host GHM 2016 in Rennes
(Brittany, France, 2h from Paris by train) at Inria this summer.

I'm currently thinking August, but September or October could also be
done if August seems too rushed. ;-).

Please let me know if you like the idea or if I'm stepping on somebody's
toes here. Also, if someone else would volunteer to organize the program
(as in, schedule, speakers, website, anything non-local), that would be
greatly appreciated.

Happy hacking!

[FOSDEM] Sunday, dinner?

Hello all,

I am still in Brussels this evening, but most of my homies are about to leave or have left.  Anyone up for dinner this evening?  I'd be into going somewhere relatively near the FOSDEM location (because my apartment is nearby), but if super necessary i can come to the centre of town, too.  I'll keep checking my email till 7pm latest, if i haven't got a response by then i'll fix something up for myself.

Hi hackers!  FOSDEM starts in 4 weeks..  so... who is coming? :)
