Hi
Yeah San James is right, the doodle has been up for some time now and we
should at least say if we're not available for the proposed days. I also
wanted to point out that many people are not on this list and maybe don't
know about it. I would suggest adding anyone that you think is missing and
encourage them to join us. I added Camara (reps from Senegal), Niang, Fulah
contributor and my unofficial mentee), Sahalou from Mali (Head of (being
created after my events in Bamako) Mozilla Mali). Will add more?
I looked at the pad many times and thought maybe we could think of
"topics/areas" and people would add suggestion under each heading. At least
that would make it easier I think. Topics like: community building, Mozilla
products, Communication, Webmaker etc...
Thanks all and let's make it happen!
Ibrahima
