Looks like a great idea to promote open-source in telecom and recruit
more devs into the community. Not to mention all other goals. I wish
you all the best in setting up this event and I wish I lived in
Berlin. :)

I have to schedule a new run of my seminars on GSM and OpenBTS in
Moscow as well. Hopefully it will bring more attention from Russian
audience as well.
