I was already enjoying this (arguably irrelevant but amusing and  
informative) thread, when....

What an excellent proposal! I look forward to the official  
announcement. :)

Actually, I've been meaning to post a note here reminding folks that  
the combined EuroTeX/BachoTeX conference is not far off. It would be  
great to see a number of presentations there showing the neat things  
you all are doing with XeTeX, and how it can play a part in moving  
the TeX world forward into the future.

I'm expecting to be there (with some new features to show, I hope),  
and would also value the chance to discuss the further development of  
XeTeX (however you care to say it!) with interested users; come with  
your wishes and suggestions, and let's see what we can



for general conference information, and in particular


for the Call for Papers. Don't be shy -- come and share your ideas,  
successes, failures, wishes, etc!
