Well, that's sort of the idea, but what's written above is that we
might as well create a list for German events. There seem to be a lot
of them, and high quality/important, at that, as well as lots of
participants. So, rather than force a lot of people to speak another
language, maybe just having a list that's clearly for German speakers
would be more appropriate? Maybe something even so simple as tagging
messages would be enough (writing [DE] in the subject)?

I only speak two, at the moment, unfortunately. Well, you could count
'veneto' as 1/2, I guess. Next on the list is probably spanish:-)

Unfortunately, no. My point, though, is not Linuxtag in particular,
but being able to follow the planning and ideas that go into creating
a successful event. There are a lot of people on this list dedicating
time, energy and ideas, and I would (selfishly, I admit) like to be
able to use that for my own benefit, should I be called upon to get
involved in some event in the future (for instance, webbit 2002...).
There is also the odd possibility that myself or others might be able
to contribute something to the discussion.

Anyway, sorry to intrude, we now return you to your regularly
scheduled "Anmeldung" discussion. Thanks for your time and

David N. Welton
