Thank you Asaf,
I replied there, but I'll repeat here:
I think your proposal is perfectly in line with the Saturday track: discussing about Wikisource identity, writing a "manifesto" and providing the foundations of a future movement-wide conversation about Wikisource is the core of the conference.

I had a very rich conversation with Garfield in the site visit he made in Italy,
and now I'm more than convinced that we are on the right direction for making beautiful things happen.

The conference will be, I hope, an awesome event where Wikisource editors will gather, discuss, write software, and see themselves as a whole community.
The more we are aware of who we are, the easier is to tell others.
I think this is crucial for the future of Wikisource.

I really hope we'll be many in Wien :-)

Thank you all for your input, and for those who contributed updating the program.

I'm very glad to tell you that the WMF has accepted the Proposal!

It's now time to start organizing the conference:
go to the Chapters you contacted earlier, as we need to have as many people possible with the Scholarship.
Soon enough we'll start working with the WMF for international scholarships.

It sounds good to me.

I add myself about the National Library of France partnership (an old one but still interresting with useful lessons learned). Ping : JeanFred : are you available to talk with me?

Talking about the BAnQ partenership would be great too (Ernest are you available?).

For Wikidata, it's a big transversal subject. We need at least an introduction presentation on Friday for everyone to know what we're talking about and having (roughly) the same level of knowledge.
