Thanks for labelling me as "under-productive". :-)

As you may well know laziness is one of the three great virtues of a 
programmer. And besides it's not that simple - I need it in English for the 
mailing lists, and in Hebrew for the web sites, and I need to customise the 
content etc. And it's not very time-consuming.

However, I feel that with my level of contribution to the FOSS world, I have 
much better things to contribute to my time than to publicise it, which any 
HTML-knowing kid can do. And some people practically don't do anything to 
Perl or FOSS, while I may be over-doing things a bit.

What have you done for your country lately?

If you don't want publicity for the meetings - fine - I'm not going to do it. 
If you do want, then someone will have to volunteer. In fact, I'm CCing this 
message to Linux-IL where some people may volunteer.

If it's not in my E-mail it doesn't happen. And if my E-mail is saying
one thing, and everything else says something else - E-mail will conquer.
