    Nothing wrong, though it might be a problem that some people are not able
    to come at that day due to work or whatever. But looks as if it is the
    best day.

    Nice topics, everyone of it.

    This isn't too debian specific, or? If we only get one day, we should
    focus on some more debian-related things (it's intended to be for
    developers and developers-in-spe.. :)

    Might be coupled with debian package maintenance.

    This could be combined with talking about alternative installation file
    systems (has anyone started this, otherwise that meeting could be a good
    date to create a task force :).

    Listing this one time is enough I guess..

    If we get one room for nine hours, we might be able to have 7 up to 8
    talks and meetings coupled with GPG fingerprint trades and stuff...
