Well, given that Debian Day is meant to be the best opportunity to
have contact with local people (other than those involved in the
organization) and as you know my own personal involvment to the
development of Debian in various place, including Latin America, I
think I would be very hapy to attend Debian Day.

So, it seems that I may need to change my schedule....which definitely
will not be easy..:-)

Then, I really suggest to avoid scheduling conferences this day. This
was one of the minor hiccups of DC5 to have conferences scheduled the
very last day (which was a Sunday and then obviously a general
pack-up-and-leave day). For instance, I remember hmh BOF about "New
generation init scripts" which had a very low attendance at the
beginning...or myself being forced to miss Helen's talk about Debian
in Science.

Again, as a few of us pointed, getting this semi-official schedule
officially getting the blessing of the organizers by being on the
website is definitely a good thing to do for us early birds..:)
