Marios and Fedon (not sure of how to write that) take the same flight as you. THey say it's much better to leave at 6.30. Is that fine to you?

I was at the reception when you called, It's updated.
I'm giving right now this list:
May 21 2015
So, we planned several stuff.
First of all, we have 58 whiteboards. We plan to stick them by two, so that it can be seen from anywhere. This gives us 29 whiteboards. There are 20 plots in the big room. Then we were thinking the others whiteboards at the entrance of some other rooms.

The code is: WMHACK

Thank you Quim for bringing that here, I was unsuccessfuly looking for it. :)
Regarding the planning of ceremonies:

Sounds doable to me. I'll do my best to do something perfect.
We have one team that'll be able to film. ;)
May 12 2015
@Sylvain_WMFr, can you check this test? Thanks.
If needed, the design team can forward me codes if design lasts longer than you need. I'll print them in Paris.
Apr 29 2015
No need for visa for all of them though, that's cool. ;)
Good for Sylvain and I. Should I send them email or Quim will do?
Apr 28 2015
I don't know if I'm relevant to give my opinion here but still, I will.
Also, a map of the place and a schedule will be included.
Apr 27 2015
USB Sticks have been ordered. :)
I checked with a partner school in Lyon, they have a camera that can be connected to a computer which can live broadcast on YouTube.

That's great! :)

Sylvain just got his contact.
I'll go and see with Sylvain.

Does that answer your questions?
regarding the first round of Scholarship approval sent, and by calculating average flight costs for the 24 attendees, we have:
We haven't discuessed our metrics for a while because I think we're doing pretty good so far. Indeed, we have some newcomers, we have some women (23 registed, more than 10%). We're working on making more come.
I thought it was late since registration closed in March...
Sylvain said he'll take care of this. I just asked him to see his progress.

We'll give many explainations regarding how to come to Valpré from many places.

Wikimedia France. I'm very sorry for not being more explicit mate! ;)

I'll buy 20 4Go USB sticks, and can we agree that @bd808 send us the image one week before the hackathon? On the 16th of May?
I will need you help guys.
Mar 25 2015
We'll take care of this, sorry for the delay.

It's adressed to the french embassy. I can send them a letter in English if they want to understand (There is also the translation just above in this feed).
Mar 16 2015
Mar 13 2015
I was actually waiting for your approval. If it does looks good to you, I'll start sending to everyone.
If it's fine, just close the task, I will understand that you approve it. :)
Mar 10 2015
@Qgil, would a message from Sylvain on the same lists he went though to announce openings of this Hackathon make sense?
Also, would it be possible to have a link so that I can add it to the MediaWiki Hackathon's page? I'll then share it with @Sylvain_WMFr, and he'll add it to the registration form.
Mar 6 2015
This is exactly what I did. I wrote to every European chapter contact form so far, with a link to this page and also the link for registration in case they want to spread it to their members.
I'm sending an email to every chapter right now.
When Nathalie will be there, I'll ask him direct email adresses of every executive director to put some pressure and force them to give an answer asap. ;)
This sounds very reasonable to us.

We finished the letter, you can find it in the document uploaded.
Feb 20 2015
The association « Wikimédia France – Association pour le libre partage de la connaissance » organise from the 22nd to 26th of may 2015 the Hackathon of the Wikimedia Foundation in Lyon.
We already did the letter, you can find it in the document uploaded.
Feb 16 2015
Great. I can manage that activity if necessary.
- What about travel / visas / reimbursement? This is an area that requires special dedication.
It's the same pronunciation as in "a pot of gold" :)
Feb 13 2015
Will the WMF employees & Chapters members have to chose "un pote" or will it be random distribution?
Actually, in French, the closest meaning would be "un pote". It sounds pretty cool and really imply a connection.
It does sounds very much like one american word for drug though.
Thus, what Lila is suggesting is that we stop middle-term projects which are developed one Hackathon at the time (such as Maps or Flow for instance) but focus instead on projects that can be finished in 3 days?
So far so good!

Is there improvement for contacting Italian schools? Should we invite them to attend the Hackathon in Lyon?
@Ricordisamoa have you already seen some schools?
I've got family in Italy. Most of them are into engineering, should I ask them for the Good schools around Milan and Turin?
Though, I'll need more info.
Quim, I'm working here for the WMFr in Paris but I can be your local dude in Lyon.
Regarding main themes, we were considering Wikidata and maps, in order to continue what has been started last year.
Regarding our calculations, we'll be able to cover scholarships for 20 attendees up to 350€, including 160€ for the bedroom and 190€ for transportation.
