Same here. I am waiting for Gregory to confirm his participation.
Without a proper GNUstep developer room it wont be worthwhile for me to
show up otherwise. I spend most of last years FOSDEM sitting behind our
stall and found this rather boring. What GNUstep needs most is
collaboration and discussion between developers. Attracting more users
is also important, but for me this is only the next step. And without a
proper live CD to hand out, how should we attract users?

Is anybody working on a live CD? If so, what components will it include?
With Camaelon not working on current GNUstep it will be hard to have a
setup showing a complete set of current applications.

Couldn't we just meet in a bigger hotel room or, if some of us are
staying in the same hotel, use the hotel lobby? It wont be the same as
AlpenStep, where it was possible to hack together for half night, still
it should be ok for talks and discussions.
