Hi Sébastien,

I respond to you in private... for i was already working on a 'project' that might help us indeed... but rather not have it disclosed now, since i need to have the whole marketing thing in place first.

I've registered http://www.perl.evetns <http://www.perl.evetns/> and was ... in conjunction with the Act-Voyager REST api going to build a new global frontend the new front end could be hosted by a single instance, as long as people adhere to the REST api, but http://www.perl.events <http://www.perl.events/> would just be a easy way to see what is going on world wide and have a website directly available, without munging on templates.

so we could still host the old ACT as is and start with a (uniform) new front end, and yes, my.perl.events would be the private pages for personal admin stuff.

So, that also explains my renewed interest in having acces to the Act server, to continue with the REST api, and implement bit by bit

Concerning YAPC::Amsterdam, until mid december, it seems we will work with http://YAPC.Amsterdam <http://yapc.amsterdam/>
After that, we might move to TPC.Amsterdam

I got the message from GitHub, indeed

that was a mistake from my side:
