Ok. This is my take on it. We can evolve these into actual todos as
each date approaches:

* Revive QAC, permanently: We need to start within the next two weeks.

* Hold a seminar/event in Dubai or Bahrain: Next winter. Summer in the
gulf will drive people away...

* Raise more funds (mostly for the above): Not sure.

* Start a full-fledged recruitment campaign: Some time next month with
the beginning of a new college semester when students are at their
highest level of enthusiasm.

* Translate the static pages on the website to Arabic: We should start
about, oh say, 2 seconds after we move to plone, which I hope will be
within the next 2 weeks too.

* Find a way to make possible the translation of non-static text on
the website (the stuff on MySQL): Soon as the above is done.

* Start an unofficial but very loud movement or campaign to promote
the deployment of FOSS in Arabic-speaking countries: To be safe, I'll
put the rough date at near the end of this year.
