Thanks, volunteers!

Another FOSDEM is behind us, and this edition was the best ever! This was in no small manner aided by our enthousiastic army of volunteers who helped with the setup, moderation, infodesk and various crucial tasks. I would like to take a moment to thank them for all their effort. Without you guys this would not have been possible.

Thanks, volunteers! I'm looking forward to working with you again next year...
