[Debconf-announce] Room allocation for DebConf7

Hi everybody,
Marga, aj and I will be doing room allocation for Debconf this year.
We'll have accommodation in two backpackers' hostels a few minutes' walk away
from Teviot:
- Cowgate Tourist Hotel  
- Budget Backpackers 
You can find more info about them on the website. [0]
We will have dorm rooms with 4 beds, 6 beds, 8 beds, 10 beds, and even 12 beds.
To distribute the people among the rooms so that it's as comfortable as 
possible for everyone, we're asking all the people staying at the sponsored
allocation to please mail us their room preferences to rooms@debconf.org 
Please state clearly: 
 * Who you would like to share the room with. 
 * Who you would NOT like to share the room with. 
 * Whether would you rather be with people who speak your language or people 
   who don't.
 * Whether would you rather be with people from your country or not.
 * What criteria would be "ok" (people from your own team: d-i, kernel,...)
The idea is to know your preferences so we can allocate the rooms in a way 
that will make people happier.
Some important notes:
- Smoking inside the hostels is NOT allowed
- Couples will not be given private rooms, there is the option to ask to share 
  with other couples. 
- Since we need to use the full booking, we cannot guarantee to satisfy
  everyone's requests.
