Re: Upcoming Events in Africa

Hey Arky,

Thanks for the updates as well as setting up the event pages on the reps
portal.

We've had a thread going with Robyn from dev-eng around participation of
local mozillians in Africa hack-trip; We should wrap up soon on how we'll
be involved in this. I figure it makes sense logistically to have
mozillians based in East Africa to participate, so more updates on that. I
hope we'll have your presence (physically) in all of these :)

Regarding the events in SA, we could have representation from North, East,
West and South Africa. So I'll ping mozillians from these regions to see
what we can setup. Robyn also to see if dev-eng can be involved.

cheers,
Alex
