Well, while the URL that I got mentions dc10, I just logged in to the system
and it says dc11.

Anyway, I guess that I am not the only one to have problems answering some
questions of the registration form:

* In the general part of the registration, the Debian status field gives the

  + Debian Developer
  + Otherwise involved in Debian
  + Not yet involved but interested
  + Accompanying a Debian participant
  + DebConf Organizer
  + DebConf Volunteer
  + Press
  + Sponsor

  Would it be possible to have a category for Debian Maintainers [0] that
  aren't Debian Developers there, distinguished from the 2nd option above?

  [0]: http://www.debian.org/vote/2007/vote_003

* In the DebConf part of the registration, what is the question "Printed
  proceedings?" asking me? If I want a version of the printed proceeding
  sent/mailed to me? If I allow any work that I publish to be part of a
  printed version of the proceedings? It's not clear from that.

* In the DebCamp part of the registration, the DebCamp options are:

  + I won't be attending DebCamp
  + I have a specific work plan for DebCamp
  + I don't have a specific plan for DebCamp (week payment (450) required)

  Do the people "I don't have a specific plan for DebCamp, but I am willing
  to do some slavery Debian-related work while I am on a trip far, far away
  from my country" have to pay for that fee?

  This was my reason for not checking that box the past year and I see that
  it is still there, causing me confusion once again.

Thanks for any help with this,
