My biggest achievement at any debconf was to actually *be* at debconf5,
my first-ever debconf. At the time, I was having personal issues, and
was seriously considering resigning from the project. Someone (I forgot
whom) suggested that I could make it to debconf5 as a sponsored
attendee, and eventually convinced me.

The opportunity to see and meet all those people who were so passionate
about Debian, to see and meet them in a different setting, revived my
passion and fire for this community. I am convinced that I would not be
involved with Debian anymore today if I hadn't been at debconf5.

the following formula:
