Oh, another thing : I just realized that I haven't selected the three choice configuration for this pool (yes, maybe yes, not), so I will interpret all the positive results as a "weak" yes (yes if needed..)

I would like to remind everybody that there is a doodle about the organisation of the next coreboot meeting (hackaton) -> 
I kindly ask you to answer this pool, because it will help me to determine the optimal time frame for this event. Even if you aren't sure 100%, answer please, this is only an indicative pool for me..
It is very import to know how many people are (even remotely..) interested, especially if the event has to be organized at an early date (say just after the FOSDEM 2016..).

By the way, I would like to make a suggestion : if the pool results finally converge to some kind of "bipolar distribution" ( ;-) ), i.o.w. there is a group of people who favor a spring meeting and another group who favor a fall meeting, maybe we should "split" the coreboot hackaton and make 2 "sub-hackatons".. ;-) But in this case, someone else should pick up the task to organise the other meeting, because I cannot manage alone two coreboot meetings in one year..

What do you think?

So, I think in the next day, we should pick the location and date for the
"spring" meeting. I'd also suggest it be a 6 month interval between
meetings, which is the other reason I thought end of  january was a bit too

Sound OK?

What Stefan says is very true. I have friends here in the US who must have
2016 travel approved by dec. 31 2015.
