The events are next week, so this is too late (for Berlin). :(

Can we have that for next Wednesday?

It's not so much about "short on material", there's a lot which could
have been done (like nice CD/DVD labels, a nice screen presentation,
graphical flyer layout with a general text to be translated and used
in different countries, etc.

At least these major European events have been known to come for many
months (even listed as milestones in the wiki) and it looks as if I
was the only one asking constantly for these kinds of things (starting
in late February/March). IMHO these practical needs were a bit
neglected because everybody in this section was occupied by
discussions about marketing theories. Sorry to say that, but this is
how it looks in reality.

Pls do not take this so much as critic of the past - to late and
useless to discuss - but rather as a hint for marketing tasks for
future events.
