I also have a foot in the OpenSC community, which is where the idea
for this devroom first came up. We keep a wiki page for the room:

We plan for every project participating in the devroom to do a brief
introduction at the start of the day, so that everyone will know what
we everyone else does.

A note on devrooms at FOSDEM for people who have not visited at all,
or just not in a while;

The devrooms at FOSDEM tend to always be overcrowded to the point
where people can not or are not allowed to enter the room. Please
make sure to arrive early before the timeslot if you're involved
with one or more participating projects, so that you can be sure to
actually get into the room.

I like it!

Very much so. FOSDEM is a developer meeting, no entry fee, Brussels
in February was very nice last year.
