We are definitely willing to organize it with FBK.
We were waiting to hear from the other chapter who expressed some
interest. I also got in touch with WM-NL to discuss if they can/are
willing to organize the event near the hackaton, since probably that
the overlap with that event could be greater, as Sumana proposed.
Also, Amsterdam may be a little easier to reach than Trento (I have
been told that most of OSM developers are based in Germany or in UK).
(I don't mean to put pressure on anybody though)

In any case, we will collect some feedback in the next days and then
you'll hear from us.

That's right. I think that in at most an couple of weeks we will be
able to fix some details.
