For those who don't know, Debconf 2 will be held at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from July 5-7, 2002. I have percieved some confusion as to just what the target audience and subject matter of Debconf 2 will be. First: Debconf is not an expo or booth-based conference like Comdex or even ALS. Debconf is based around talks, demos and discussions, and will be highly technical in nature. Its target audience is Debian developers, though technical Debian users are welcome to attend as well. Anybody who wasn't clear on what Debconf was and doesn't want to attend anymore, please e-mail me immediately. There is no charge to attend Debconf aside from the fees you incur in getting to York University and the cost of staying in Toronto, either at York University or off-campus at a hotel. When you register for Debconf at http://lindows.com/debconf2 , I receive confirmation that you have registered, but you *do not*. I expect that sometime this week I will be sending out information to all registered users telling them how they can reserve and/or pay for their rooms at York University. You *need* a credit card in order to confirm your room booking. If this is a problem you will have to find someone else to book a room or somewhere else to stay. Sorry. PLEASE NOTE: YORK UNIVERSITY REQUIRES ALL DELEGATES BE CONFIRMED BY WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5th, 2002. This means that York needs to receive your confirmation form on or before that date, not that you need to register by that date. Therefore, I plan to make Friday, May 31, 2002 the last day you can register for Debconf 2. If you don't make this deadline you can still come, but you won't be able to have the arrangements made through us. An updated Debconf schedule (hopefully the final schedule) will be released this week. Anybody with further questions please e-mail me immediately. -- Joe Drew <firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com> Please encrypt email sent to me.
