Re: [Debconf-team] double-checking: content on July 9th?

The DebConf16 website says that the conference runs "from Saturday, 2
July to Saturday, 9 July 2016". Are people expecting to have sessions on
Saturday the 9th?
The 9th should be a normal conference day. I'd let it end a bit earlier (e.g. closing ceremony after lunch) but Sunday 10th is explicitly the departure day (cf. https://debconf16.debconf.org/about/dates/). The advantage of doing so is that we can call people to action during the closing ceremony and have many hands to move things back where they belong, remove posters, pack boxes for storage, clean up etc. Once we're done with this I expect a dinner with plenty of fun and according to attendee stats still ~150 people around. As only ~50 people feel they need to leave on Saturday before the evening, I'd use at least the Saturday morning still for regular schedules and - again - push the closing ceremony to the afternoon right after lunch for logistics reasons.
