I haven't thought too much about the covers of the proceedings yet.  I
have been at three other conferences recently (Fifth HOPE, GCC summit,
and OLS) and am looking at what sort of best practices I'd like to learn
from them.

It might also be interesting (As a fund raiser or something) to see if
we can take orders for non-tshirt type of things.  I would cheerfully
pay for a polo shirt or a number of other pieces of Debconf wear f it
were possible to buy it at the conference.

My Portuguese really wasn't that different drunk or sober. =)  The
address was really nice.

At The Fifth HOPE, they had arm bands (which were too loose, sadly) that
had a space where names could be written on.  People wore them however,
but it was something that was a bit different.  I don't know if there's
soething similar we can do but that displays the name more clearly.

Sorry for the lag in replying. =)
