Re: Mozillians in Africa

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.216.66

Thanks for the feedback Ibrahima, Schalk. I know there's also a Mozillla
Africa Google group who might be out of the loop here so I'll write on that
list also and get intouch with a couple of community leads with the Friday
date as a proposed one and hopefully we can have the 2nd week of October
for our first meeting.

cheers,
Alex
