Dear all,

As a few (many?) of you have seen, our servers got hacked during
Christmas and we've been not very fast at getting everything back online.

In the meantime we have been handed over the management of Document
Freedom Day (DFD) and the FSFE is still hosting the system. It has taken
us a bit of time to get familiar with the way events registration is
being handled (and events appear...). I believe we're finally ready!

So DFD is happening on March 30th this year, being the last Wednesday of
March but as usual the date you chose is really what works best for you.
Currently we have events planned from March 16 to April 8, with 17
events registered and visible at
The website has been updated to a minimum to reflect 2016 changes.
Artworks design is available on FSFE git server at

Next event planned for 2016 is Hardware Freedom Day which after a
community consultation will happen on April 9th (2nd Saturday of the
month). It seemed to be the best date for most of interested
participant, so that's what we'll use this year. We still need to put
the website, the wiki and the registration scripts back online,
something which should happen this week or the next.

The leftover is Education Freedom Day which obviously can't happen on
March 23rd this year for a few reasons. We would be interested to know
what date works best for you, and will run a poll as we did for HFD.

And last but not least, Software Freedom Day will happen on September
17th this year. We will come back to this later but are planning to run
a T-shirt design competition, and hopefully will be able to ship T-shirt
this year.

Thank you very much for your patience and let wish ourselves the best in
promoting Software, Hardware, Document and Education Freedom!
