The Internet, January 24, 2012 - TDF and LibreOffice will be on stage at FOSDEM 2012 conference in Brussels, Belgium, on February 4 and 5, with a dedicated track (http://fosdem.org/2012/schedule/track/libreoffice_devroom) and a booth where it will be possible to meet developers and other volunteers and ask for information about contributing to the project. Michael Meeks, member of TDF Board of Directors, says: "We're honored to be hosted at FOSDEM again, the key event for Free Software hackers in Europe, and we've lined up a large number of our core contributors to give talks and mentor interested hackers". LibreOffice has just surpassed the number of 390 code contributors completely new to the project since the announcement on September 28, 2010. The 400th new code contributor might be announced at FOSDEM, and will be awarded a free LibreOffice T-Shirt. With an average of close to 80 code contributors per month since January 2011, LibreOffice has been one of the largest Free Software projects during the last year (source: Ohloh, https://www.ohloh.net/p/libreoffice).
