Oh no ... Brian won't make it either. That starts to feel like a 2nd
generation meeting without you guys (at least we still have
Jean-Fran__ois) ;)

AFAIK, Stephan stays in Gent. Jens stays at Hotel La Madelaine, same as
FOSDEM '05. The rest of us stays at Hotel Du Congres at a price of
66___/person for the weekend (Friday to Sunday). I booked two twin rooms
on for Yves-Alexis, Christian, Nick and myself. I'm sure
you'll find good but cheap rooms there as well.
