I'd be happy to see Africans at EuroPython. The first thing I would
like to teach these people is the string method 'lower' :-)

    Don't put too much expectation there in. You will receive a bunch of
    mails like this one, but generally, those registrations are *very*
    unsure. The same from Nigeria, Rwanda or China, Tibet, etc.

    They just try to get a visa to leave their country.

    Season's greatings,

    Sheesh, that is a bit of a blanket statement. There has been at least one
    African (me) at two of the past Eurpythons (2003 & 2003) and he a had
    really good time, learnt lots and made a lof of new contacts.

    Please don't paint with too large a brush.

    There was a very pleasant man running a small Zope company from
    Tunisia there last year as well as a Nigerian (I think) now working in
    Saudi Arabia, and of course if things go well, we will have Mark
    Shuttleworth here to give the keynote ....

    I'd like to make EuroPython _the_ international Python conference,
    a project which is a lot easier now that the USA has made travel
    so onerous. Be warned now -- some Bulgarian friends of mine, living
    in Canada (he is getting his Masters in csc at a university there)
    have now discovered that they need US visas to board a plane that
    lands in the USA to take on more passengers even though their final
    destination is in Europe and noone is allowed to disembark.


    On the other hand, that particular note, all in screaming upper case
    smells like a scam to me. (Which is why I made the joke about lower
    case) Fortunately, I have a way to test this. I sent a nice note back
    saying 'can you please tell me how you use Python?'. The originator
    of that note never replied to that mail ...
