As we were invited more or less directly by Vincent Untz, unfortunately we 
probably can't add by ourselves new attendants to the meeting. In fact we are 
already 3 persons from mageia out of 9 attendants (unless you count Nanar as 
distro-independant for this meeting because Sophie is cross-distro).

But I'm CCing Vincent in case he has a different opinion.

Which doesn't mean we are the best people for such a meeting (for sure, hadn't 
I started the mageia-app-db project recently, I wouldn't have been invited, 
given my limited past contributions :)), but I think the most important here 
is that this reunion takes place, and we'll of course make follow-ups on the 
MLs after that.

However, it would be great to meet you there, I'm sure you could join us for a 
meal or more, or we could "escape" a diner to go with you and maybe other 
german willing to join us :)
Beware : my "deutsch" level is far far below what it should be given it was  
first foreign language. I'm even better at russian !

Best regards

Samuel Verschelde
