[Debconf-team] Reference letters for hostel/venue/confdinner etc.


I don't think I am alone in saying that we were supported by really
great people, whether at the venue, the conf dinner, or the

Similarly, all of the people that helped us spoke in high terms of
us and the DebConf15 participants.

I've thus agreed with most of them to exchange reference letters.
For us, such letters will mean easier negotiations in the future, as
they could well bridge the initial scepticisms ("computer nerds? 400
of them? omgwtf?"), and also help in other ways.

I've drafted the four most salient letters (in German) here:
and welcome corrections, additions, feedback, whatever. Sorry for
the language (I'll make sure the letters we receive are in English),
but I still chose to send this mail to all of you so that you're all
in the loop.

I think it would be really useful if we could get reference letters
from DC13 and DC14 as well, and keep collecting those in future
years. Gaudenz, Didier, Steve, Patty, everyone: do you think this
is still possible, and if you think it's a good idea, would you be
willing to try?
