 - IBM ("profile" needed: "I currently handle the sponsorship
   relationship for the Kernel Summit and for the Ottawa Linux
   Symposium, which are considered two community events which have the
   most synergy and benefit for IBM and where an IBM presence helps
   demonstrate our committment to the success and future of Linux. I
   would be interested in discussing what benefits a DebConf sponsorship
   might provide IBM with, as well as some more detail on what form the
   sponsorship might take. I looked at your outline of typical
   sponsorship opportunities; in general, and especially so for
   international conferences, our simplest option is a cash sponsorship.
   Shipping hardware internationally is something of a chore, and even
   locally, our development organization is not hardware rich enough
   that we can afford to be shipping away our desktops and lab
 - HP
 - Sun
 - Linspire
 - Linuxmagazine
 - Nokia (already contacted)
 - local linux companies: SOT, F-Secure

We planned to form teams and assign tasks to each team while
communication remains solely via one list.
