my rethoric question was about any other place where it may happen :)

just let us know when it happens :)

in fact, I do attend events where fedora, debian and ubuntu community
cooperate to help people *use* their computer, let's call it SAV
(service-après-vente, service after saling ?) of install' parties. It
happens once a month, first saturday in Paris (and many people come;
some with ubuntu, some with mandriva, few with gentoo, we are there with
mageia :p)

too early :)
marketing may have stopped people from contributing, maybe open another
list with "participate" ? (or contribute or engage or join or
installl_party or proselytism or just install, maybe it could be a
positive action of marketing to coordinate what is possible and involve
people ?)
