Well, an announment of plans cannot hurt, just as long as you make clear
that the facilities have not yet been assigned to us...
I also think it is important to stress that this will not be a "Wikipedia
party", but hacking event with highly technical presentations. Partly to
scare off the ones that are not looking for this, partly to attract those
actually looking for it :)

Excellent. February 7./8. sounds good, and WMDE willing, I'll be there. If
WMDE decides to support this officially, I may even be able to spend some
time helping with the organization.
I'M trying to decide if I should start spreading the news now, in order to
reach as many people as possible, or if it's better to wait until we know we
have been accepted. What do you think?
