FSFE's 2007 General Assembly meeting

FSFE's 2007 General Assembly meeting


From Friday June 29th to Sunday July 1st, FSFE held its annual meeting of the General Assembly in Brussels. Starting at 10am each morning, we were in the meeting room until 8pm, 10:30pm, and 5pm. Being an employee, I was there as a guest.

In preparation for the meeting, a two year executive summary of FSFE's projects was published.

On the Monday afterward, Sean Daly interviewed Georg Greve. The audio and a transcript of the interview is on Groklaw. We had been trying to arrange that interview all weekend, and Sean was always ready, but the annual meeting was so draining that it kept being put off til the next day.

While in Brussels, we had a social event where we met with some of the Fellows from Belgium and the Netherlands. Before the weekend, some of us were saying it was a pity not to organise a more formal event since so many people of FSFE were present. After the weekend, I realised that it's just not possible to add more work to the schedule. The social event was just right.

It was funny that the meeting coincided with the release of GPLv3. This was one of the biggest announcements of the year, but we were all too busy and tired to be able to participate much.
