LinuxTag is coming closer and closer, so it's time to make some
general decisions with regard to Debian.
1. Do we want to have a booth?
1.1 What do we want to demonstrate?
1.2 How are we going to solve the staff-visitor ratio (so it's
less than 10 Debian people for one visitor).
1.3 Who will be around?
1.4 What kind of hardware will be required?
1.4.1 What about hardware that we don't own?
1.4.2 Shall we create large signs (posters) to explain that it
is not a conventional PC which is running the OS in
front of the visitor?
1.5 Who is going to provide which hardware?
1.6 What about CD's?
1.6.1 What ought to be on the CD?
Remember, there's Knoppix <http://www.knoppix.de/> as well.
1.6.2 Who is going to master the CD?
1.6.3 Who is going to help with mastering?
1.6.4 Who is going to make test installations etc?
1.6.5 Who will negotiate with a press company etc.?
1.6.6 Who will acquire donations and negotiate with sponsors?
1.7 Who is going to plan the booth, including size requirements,
furniture, computers etc.
1.8 Anything else?
2. Do we want to have a conference of our own?
2.1 Who will give a talk about what topic?
2.2 How and where should it be promoted?
3. Who will be responsible for the Debian presence?
That's usually my part, but since I'm organizing LinuxTag already,
I will probably not have enough time to organize the Debian
presence entirely as well. Hence, there is need for at least one
assistant, or one person who maintains it on his own entirely.
Anyway, this person needs to communicate with me closely.
I'm going to collect information at
If you haven't been to last years LinuxTag shows, please check the
pages from last year to get an idea of what it's all about.
Request for Help: I could use some people who help me with
implementing a web based management system for all projects at
LinuxTag. If you're interested, check this mail and contact me:
 I'll take flyers and mugs with me. We're going to have some 50
general Debian-oriented t-shirts and I'd like to have special
Debian/Woody t-shirts, so creative people should give a helping
