Yes, I understand. There is a problem, though, in that if you make the orange darker, it turns to brown and literally looks like... well... poop. To try and avoid this problem I have experimented with up of 30 different colours and. if you go dark like the rest of the pages, the overall result is very drab, uniforme and non-inviting. I you go light, the writing has to be black or it is hard to read. This is the best compromise I could come up with. I'll play around a bit more, but I don't think I will be able to come up with anything better. If anybody can suggest a good colour combo, I would love to try it.

Yeah... Nothing's final yet and the text needs proofreading. @skadinna will probably do that. Agree on the white con yellow... I haven't figured out what I am going to do with that yet. That said, changing colours is like a 2 minute job, so I want to get it all done and then do the tweaks.
@derkits : Yes, I am nearly finished. I have (re)written and laid out most of the text-heavy pages (see below).

Take a look at a draft of the first three pages of the sponsor booklet. I could not find an attractive way of reproducing the olde formatte, so I said, "f**k it", broke out my design books and tried something different. As this is does not have to be printed, the size of the page does not have to be a standard portrait A4 so we can be a bit bolder...
@derkits Oh! Ok... As we mentioned the hosting institution last year, I supposed it was the done thing.
I would need some info about Fachschaft Informatik (FSINF) too, please @hetzenecker.

I changed my choice. I now prefer Barcelona over Berlin because @apol has found a nice, free space for us to carry out our sprint. This solves a lot of admin for us, hence my preference for Barcelona.

Out of curiosity... Wasn't anything done for 2016? But, yeah, more communication. That said, the 2017 version was shared from T5817 ... several times, including a link to the source files.

Stuff we have to (re)write:

Thanks, @hetzenecker. That is very useful.
texts about the location or Vienna in general, our local infrastructure
Sorry guys, but that is not the latest version. The latest version is the 2017 one and we (@skadinna and I) are working on the texts for 2018. Also note that when we re-did the layout, we formalised it with master pages and styles, which no earlier layout had. Hence we would prefer to use last year's version of the layout, since it will be simpler to produce a new version just be tweaking the styles and templates.

I don't want to nag you guys, but saying

3.- Munich / Barcelona (don't care, either or)

Plus the weather will probably good.
How would people feel about doing it in... Málaga? We have a good well-connected, international airport, so getting here shouldn't be too hard, and I could set it up so that everybody would be well-housed, watered and fed during the sprint.

- Develop a comprehensive, but simple checklist that will allow project managers know if there web is audience-friendly
- Develop an event that will help more end users become familiar with KDE apps and environments
- Develop a list of things to do to boost our presence at technical-events held by others, based on experience at QtWS 2017
- Brainstorm and develop ways of having a presence in non-technical or, at least non-FLOSS specific conferences and events
- There is a proposal in T6895 that suggests trying to make KDE the default tech solution for research and academia. Brainstorm more specialised fields we could attack and how to go about it involving developers
- Brainstorm more actions to reach end-end users

Oops, that's actually Bulgarian :)

Careful! Remember FOSDEM is the first weekend of February.
Yes, let's do this.
Yeah. It looks like it.
It looks like it is gonna be hard to please everybody... :-(

You are right, @davidedmundson: this is a rather big oversight that should not happen again. Also, there were QR codes on the cards, maybe there should have been some on the flyers too. Like that, visitors only carrying their mobile phones would have been able to visit our sites easily.
Oct 25 2017
When you say "Little book", do you mean the flyer didn't have any URLs printed inside it?
For those who have attended this event before, did you have the impression you interacted with more people than in prior editions? I am aware you didn't have the means to count the visitors and there is no record of the number of visitors at prior events, but a general impression would be helpful. Also if other attendees could share their thoughts.
- Málaga (Spain)
- Before the middle of December
- A long weekend (arrive on Friday, leave on Monday)

Yes, a niche market like the one you describe would be ideal for this project. Maybe we should start brainstorming organisations wealthy and patient enough to find this project attractive.
Good points, @apol. Will take them into account.

Just leaving this here as a reminder so I don't have to look for it later.

Idea is, you highlight a problems, and then give a subtle hint that we are providing a solution to it.

My initial, very rushed thoughts on what we should talk about with the people from Purism:

@duffus Good point. Sharing the spreadsheet only with selected parties now. As for the stories, we will consult with attendees before publishing their names.

More organisations I haven't contacted yet (thanks @colomar):
EDITED TO INCLUDE BETTER VERSION. Thanks @colomar for the pointers.
So I got first feedback today from the European Disability Foundation. I had asked them for 3 things:

Would you say KDE is a like a tree trunk from which many technologies branch out from? If so, we can go with a nice relaxing forest theme.
I think we should consider the entire presence as a whole - just get all communication goals in place so that we this year have one solid communication and our presence is aimed at one specific thing
I like the idea of doing something that comes out of the left field. Maybe we should brainstorm as few more ideas, though, however wacky.
I have ~150 KDE frameworks flyers.
Building Digital Freedom Together

To me this "together" is what makes KDE unique.
Re: Plasma slogans
Great idea to have the KDE vision under the logo:
As long as we don't have a solutions, I am collecting data by hand and putting it into a spreadsheet shared on share.kde.org.

1x throwback post to old Randa

+ come up with the official fundraiser hashtagDONE

Also we cancelled the last lighting talk on Saturday the same day but i really don't think anyone realized.

- What is the general road map for the e.V fundraising for Randa?
- What goal should be achieved? What fundraising levels at which date? What are countermeasures if levels aren't reached like it what happened in 2016?
- How will donation goodies be handled (Post cards that sadly weren't ordered by many)? Is there a solution to that problem, maybe with CiviCRM? (Heck I need a new mousepad, the old one with a picture of my parents shouldn't be used at all)
- What is the current state of alternative funding platforms? Afaik there was a discussion about that, but I also might be wrong
