News calendar 2015-2016

As new projects are starting (OpenCare!!) and LOTE5 is approaching, we’re going to use updates in this calendar as a way to keep track of what’s going on and should be shared so more people can join us. The calendar is maintained by the community.

If you want to commit to keeping it up for a while, you can volunteer and get your ticket to Lote. Go for it and read the instructions here.

joining you here

I can help with that @Noemi ,

as we’ve been doing this before and have some experience :slight_smile:

Thanks Doro!

Keep’em coming then. They’ll be even more useful when people registering for Lote5 will want to get a ticket and then take this on systematically and send the headlines to the countonme mailing list which we’ll need to revive.


Ping @Irene and @KiraVde can you guys translate headlines for this week into French and Dutch plse? :))


Ping @communalspoon: check out the headlines in this wiki if you want a quick look and maybe recycle during next week.


Great! Thanks @Noemi - I’ll check that out this afternoon.
