It is just like it sounds. At in-person Flock events, Fedora contributors gather to share small pieces of where we come from in our various journeys around the world to get to Flock. At one evening of the conference, we gather people together, spread out several tables, and everyone "contributes" their confectionery item to the table. Typically, we have representation across several countries and multiple continents!
