[Debconf-team] DebConf meeting tonight: 27 April 18:30 UTC
Next Meeting: 27 April 2016
(Note: Public holiday in SA)
Please put your agenda items down: http://deb.li/DC16meet1
so far I've got:
1. Sponsor invoices: status, general sponsors team feedback
2. CMC (UCT's conference management centre)
2.1 Invoicing attendees - status at CMC, any blockages?
2.2 Insurance report back - "As I am aware UCT pays large sums of
money every year for a comprehensive public liability insurance cover.
I believe that this covers personal injury - eg if someone slips and
hurts themselves. Michael is this correct? [No response yet, asked
again] As far as theft - computers or infrastructure that get stolen -
the university won't cover this. I recommend that you hire in extra
security with G4S for the duration of your conference and that the
security patrol the areas of your conference. The buildings are public
buildings and so there is no way of stopping general access to the
buildings but extra security will help."
3. Website - general feedback
3.1 Contact / Press page, with flyer link and general press release
4. Room allocations, bathrooms - see Fuller email (lurker link - how
