Hi Hans-Rudolf, all
Most likely, you are already aware of this......
I wasn't aware of any of this! Thanks for posting the links.

Should GTN be present at this BoF?
I think so.
That BoF is during BOSC, which is unfortunate, and which may mean that no
one will actually be able to attend (see https://galaxyproject
org/events/2017-ismb-bosc/ for Galaxy-related content I know about).
Does anyone think they would be able to attend this BoF?
The post says:
Even if you are unable to attend the BoF, we welcome your input.
So I think we should at least do that, even, if we don't have anyone who
can make it.
The posts asks for:
please provide 2 to 3 bullet points identifying the educational goals and
needs of your community.
Here's a start
Galaxy Training Network
- Goals: Scale bioinformatics and Galaxy training;
- make it easy to find trainers, training events, and training materials
- make it easy to collaboratively create, maintain, and share training
- Needs: How to make this happen, when very few of us are full-time trainers
Thoughts? (And I think that needs statement is weak.)
