Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Although I've mentioned them as successive steps, we can discuss simultaneously all the issues (wording, translation, hosting, dissemination strategy...).

Count me in, definitely.

You're clearly a dangerous pinko commie pragmatist.

Why do you hate freedom, Melanchthon?

Melanchton, I found this while looking for relevant examples. I mention it for the bit at the bottom about EU privacy laws and the filing with CNIL.

(CNIL: France's Commission Nationale de l'Informatique et des Libertés, the authority for the protection of personal data.)

Thanks, Vagulus. I think privacy policy is important, too.

The sponsors list in the Eurolinux petition above reminded me of another important aspect: cost. Registering a domain name within the .eu (of course!) top level domain is cheap. Hosting a lot of web traffic possibly not - we may need to pass the kitty around to get started, and perhaps include a link for people wishing to make a small donation through PayPal toward the cost of running the website.

Lest it gets buried under a ton of messages: see linca's below about the computer/coding side of the project.

Jeez, Vagulus- good idea, good model. While I was there, I tried to sign.
What's a "Zope Error"?

Zope is the content management system behind the page. It blew a gasket.
