Richard M Stallman visiting Sri Lanka

Further to an invitation by the ICTA, Richard Stallman has confirmed that he will be visiting Sri Lanka in January 2008.

Exact dates are yet to be finalized, but it will most probably be in the 2nd week of Jan. ICTA expect him to stay 2-3 days and may be a bit longer if he wants to travel around Sri Lanka. We the FOSS community is planning to organize some FOSS events around his visit.

January 2008 is still a long time a way, but it gives us plenty of time to plan a decent agenda and organize some really good events.

ICTA will officially host him, and take care of his travel logistics and expenses.
