I will gladly attend this year's edition again !

I agree with that ; the holidays are not a problem for me, as I'm still
a student. (Plus, I'm planning on spending the August holidays in germany)

The room we had was just large enough last year and I believe we may
expect more people this year...

If it's not done yet at the time of the f9n (well, rather f7n it seems),
and if some people are interested, that would be also great to add
"porting h:1 to FSO". +1 for unbreaking libfso-glib, btw.
