This is Pockey from Software Freedom International.
Do you know that there are more than 500 teams over 90 countries who
celebrate Software Freedom Day on the 3rd Saturday of September every year?
I see that there are so many lugs in Ireland ;-) and none of them
registered so far (http://softwarefreedomday.org/map) , it would be
great if you can help us to announce the launch of registration to all
the lugs or FOSS related communities in Ireland. Of course you should
register as well. I prepared an email, please feel free to improve /
modify it. Thank you very much!
You must have heard about Software Freedom Day already :-)
If you plan to organize a Software Freedom Day (SFD) event this year,
but haven't registered yet, you should definitely go to register as soon
as possible to get some goodies on or before August 2nd! SFD Goodies
availability is subject to first come first served basis and each pack
will include 3 t-shirts, 20 stickers, 10 tshirt transfer labels, 3 dvds,
20 balloons and a 2-meter long banner :-)
Registration is very easy, you just need to :
1) create a wiki page of your event under
wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/2011, and then
2) go to http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/cgi-bin/register.py to submit
your event information.
If you have any issue regarding registration, you may read our howto on
http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/CreateYourTeampage or contact us via
email: sfd-discuss(at)sf-day.org or IRC: #sfd @freenode server.
If you wonder what is SFD or how to organize or participate in a SFD
event? Please go to our website on http://www.softwarefreedomday.org and

If you already registered your SFD event, all the best to your event!
Please help us to promote Software Freedom Day by placing a SFD web

event page or softwarefreedomday.org front page. Thank you!
Look forward to hearing from you!
