Dear shirish,

Debian and DebConf do not endorse non-free platforms to distribute their stuff.
Therefore an official DebConf youtube channel is very, very unlikely to happen.

The license of the videos[0] is very permissive and doesn't prevent anyone to
upload the videos anywhere as long as the copyright notice is distributed
alongside the videos.

For the rest of your interactions with DebConf organization and teams, I for
one would really welcome shorter and more to the point emails, or better, you
showing up on IRC and asking your questions.

While I appreciate your enthousiasm and your will to help, most of your queries
would be able to be answered in a few minutes, whereas your long emails are now
taking a lot of bandwidth for the team. This might get to the point where
everyone gets frustrated: team takes lots of time to answer emails, about stuff
that has already been discussed to death; then team gets frustrated and stops
answering, then you get frustrated for being ignored.

Please that this is my position and not one of the DebConf team; I'm just a guy
on some mailing-lists, who happens to also do some stuff for DebConf.

Thanks for considering,
Nicolas Dandrimont
