Having (another) instaparty is a good idea. Most of the students have exams
now. However, it will be good if we have our first meeting on February 19th
(switched from 18th) as Yossi suggested, so we will develop ideas and make
better meetings later. We have to start from something :)

Also, we don't have to wait that long, when Fedora 10 does all that great
