I'd have to second. I know for myself I waited throughout the year for
the discussion about QtCS to pop up, and monitored the traffic to know
sooner then later what/when.

Can I ask people to fill it in the wiki table? (I think this is common
in other projects as well, e.g. Ubuntu).

Yes, so see my previous note about the "engagement" note. I'd like us
to send it both to mailing lists and have it on the labs blogs and I
will also tweet about it myself, we should aim to use @Nokia_Connects
and the rest of the Twitter space related to qt and nokia to buzz
about the event. About Visa considerations, perhaps we can just
provide a generic visa letter to participants that require it and we
confirmed are not "fake" ? To confirm that they'd have to outline
their contributions to the project if not already approvers/
maintainers etc.. Come to think of it, when applying folks better link
us to at least some of their work or blog posts etc if they are more
into promotion and want to get involved.

Or we can set up and email address , I can even set up an email alias
somewhere on my domain so people will send applications there if
that's viable. But a dev net group might be better if the admin infra
is manageable and easy to use.
