Firstly, why limit ourselves to one conference a year? I could attend more
than one if there are conferences in different regions, and if you have
regional conferences then you get the people who aren't prepared to travel
Secondly I think we should seriously consider options such as OLS. For
conferences with a similar technical stand to Debian we can just have several
Debian developers offer presentations (and I'm sure we can get a few official
slots at any conference if we try hard enough). Then we publicise the Debian
developers who are giving presentations and encourage Debian people to
attend. If 100+ Debian people attend we can then get facilities for Debian
BOF's etc (as you always can if there are a large number of people at a
conference interested in a particular sub-topic).
