first excuse me for crossposting, but I want to get more volunteers
aware of this topic and involved in it. The follow up discussion should
be on the website mailing list.
The second LibreOffice conference in Berlin is from time not so far
away. I know that the team of the first conference in Paris get not the
chance to create and use a conference management tool for all the work
around the conference. E.g. the workflow for the call for papers was
done by a form on our website that send an email to the organizers team.
The presenter had no chance to view his paper later or make some
additions etc. to it. Thus we should find a conference management system
to help the Berlin-Team (and the teams for the conferences 2013 etc.)
managing the conference more easy and get a workflow for the cfp.
I'm keen to know, if someone has experience with one or more CMS and
could recommend one. Maybe we should create a wiki page with a feature
I'm currently evaluating the environment that had been used for the
Plone conference 2011 in San Francisco. I don't know yet, if there are
some new features for the Plone conference 2012 in Arnhem. I hope to get
an update soon.
I know also the system a bit that is used to manage the cfp / lecture
program and the accomodation for the LinuxTag (http://linuxtag.org). But
I don't know yet, how difficult it would be to adapt it to our needs

Please don't ask for apology doing a mistake - just do better ;o)).
If You think, exactly the same information is required on two lists,
then send two identical mails, but avoid having two recipients in one,
i.e. resend the mail to the second list in question. This way the
threads on each list stay clean instead of beeing incompletely mixed
through people spitting out "reply to all" on every listmail reply.

To achive this I consider it a better solution to send a "heads up"
mail to this list, containing the link to the archived initial mail -
ideally containing one descriptive sentence obout the subject.
Thus it's You who provide the means to have your intention fullfilled.
Both ways in summary save lots of valuable volonteer's time, which can
be contributed in a more effective way.
