    Which... I'll have to write something up. I have placed dustbins at
    every booth. There will be pastic bags in the large storeroom. They
    shall cover all garbage from all booths. When they're filled up in the
    evening, throw them out. I'm going to check all booths on all evenings.
    (or I send one of my supporters to do that).

    Yes. Either somebody is collecting money and names to get the tickets from
    me or anybody who is interested in attending this years social event drops
    by at the office and purchases a ticket from me or my collegues.

    Which doesn't have to be true. :-)

    I'd say, please go ahead. :-) I have prepared another booth to collect
    random developers. Sound cool? Will be cooler. It's a special hacking
    center with tables, chairs, power and net.connectivity. It's designed
    especially for those with a laptop who don't have booth service and would
    like to code. It's open, so expect visitors around you.

    See above. :-)

    You could ask RedHat if they want to provide a Hacking Area for Debian
    as well, might be fun.
