On Feb2007 i was able to see Thomas presentation on Fosdem and i was 
impressed - what all of you achieved. There was a strong presence of French 
ambassadors and after i signalized that i am interessted in there work, i had 
a great time with kind and communicative people. I am sure you know what is 
the best to achieve your goals in your country. 
Please don´t forget the world who need your results. 
Example: googled metisse & fedora  - the really needfull articles only in

I had really bad conflicts with Gerold about a Legal Entity  - i hate 
bureaucracy and my opinion is that Fedora Project should not have borders - i 
don´t like´d the idea to found a german LegalEntity.  In the other way i 
proposed the EMEA Leadership in DEC2006 and now i see this could not 
established without legal status in Europe.

Like i say, think about a liason officer who is able to share with us - i am 
glad to see Thomas in Rheinfelden.

There is a EMEA Structure and the success we had in this Year to have Fudcon 
on Fosdem and LT2007 with Alan Cox and other familiar Names - the official 
launch of Fedora 7 on LT 2007 by Max ... this was happen without a legal 
entity, because of work that have to be done.

Ask yourself why you doing this? - For me is fun!
