<li>North Rhine-Westphalia is Germany's most populated state which is having general elections on 14 May 2017.

<li>On the <a href="http://planet.fsfe.org/">FSFE's planet</a>, we had an interesting dialogue popping up between our executive director Jonas Öberg, the FSFE's executive director, who argues that <a href="http://blog.jonasoberg.net/using-proprietary-software-for-freedom/">sometimes you can use proprietary software to further free and open source software</a> although you should be aware about the risk of backfiring. And Daniel Pocock, our new Fellowship representative, who answers back with <a href="https://danielpocock.com/risks-of-using-proprietary-software">"the risk of proprietary software"</a> and that "no deal might be better than a bad deal", meaning that if you cannot achieve something with Free Software you should consider to just do without it.</li>
