Lets meet in Brussels

The next ?DevJam will take place in Brussels during [http://www.fosdem.org FOSDEM], February 24 and 25 in Brussels, Belgium.

We are organizing a meeting which is a merger of two events and what we hope will be the start of a close collaboration of the free software community with the new Sun OpenJDK project.

In the past several years there were two main events around libre java for the GNU/Linux platform. The Fosdem "Escape the Java Trap" event organized by the GNU Classpath community, coordinating technical issues around implementing core libraries, compilers, tools and free runtimes. And "?DevJam", a GNU/Linux distro packaging conference organized by Debian, but meant as a cross-distribution coordination meeting to set common guidelines for packaging java programs and libraries.

The goals of the shared Fosdem/DevJam/OpenJDK meeting will be three fold:
