we (the people presenting Xfce, Geany and Midori at several German
Linux events) are currently planning our booth at this years FrOSCon (
https://www.froscon.de/). As the FrOSCon happens to be at August,
10th/11th we would love to have someone from the devs there celebrating
with us (if the schedule is hold) the release of 4.14.
Anyone interested?
