Is this true?! I'm so glad! I can actually go! Yay!!!

Although, I do think that having it in Mexico would be very cool as
well. We should support the initiatives to bring technology to the
global south, and having debconf there is a great way to do it, by
allowing lots of locals get tons of exposure to debian. 

While I'm not sure that there are many initiatives to get debian into 
schools and govt in Canada, there are some to do so in Mexico. Isn't 
it in the interest of the project to get a bunch of dd's there to help 
make that happen?

And hell, the margaritas are better in mexico...
