some weeks ago,  I wrote this to the director of Ethipia ICT Focus magazine:

does ICT Focus already knowns and plans to cover the GPL RULE project
(http://www.rule-project.org/en/, recently installed in some Congo
schools)? It makes mainstream, up to date, Free SW easily installable
on older/recycled hardware, for individuals, schools, NGOs,
etc... especially in developing countries. Please don't hesitate to
contact me if you need an article, or any further information about
the project.

This week I got the answer below, with the addition: "If someone from
your project could participate in the event it would be a great opportunity
to introduce the project in Ethiopia."

I alreadi answered that I cannot go, unfortunately, but would pass the
invitation to the list. If somebody can make it (Ingo, are you VUM boys
able to do it?), please contact me off list. Any other feedback is welcome
