Bed sheet replacements

The hostel offered to provide fresh bed sheets to anyone who strips
their bed by Saturday, 10:00 and drops the used sheets into the laundry
bins provided.

There will be another chance to get fresh bed sheets on Wednesday, but
as we assume that only very few people will want another change, you'll
need to pick them up yourself from the hostel reception.

Drink Coupons Only

Starting Saturday, the bistro (and the beer wagon) will not accept cash
anymore. You can buy the refundable coupons for 20€ at reception.

Meal Shifts

We are expecting a lot of people and so we are asking you to try to eat
during specific time windows. More infomation is on the wiki and on the
signs by the cafeteria:


Video Team Volunteers

The video team always needs volunteers. Please say hi in #debconf-video
on irc.debian.org for training and meeting announcements.

Online Schedule

If you are used to checking out the DebConf schedule via e.g. the
giggity android app, here is a URL you can point it at:


The giggity author also added it to the list of automatically displayed
conferences, so it should work out of the box.

Wasp Stings

There are a lot of wasps. It's best to just ignore them. If you get
stung, front desk has cooling pads, as well as some medication. If you
have an allergic reaction (or see someone), please call 112 immediately
and inform front desk.
