the lesson learned from the debconfs so far is that a strong
local usergroup handling all the odd jobs and a good deal of the
other jobs in mandatory for a smooth event. You could see that in
bordeaux and oslo. You together with the two people that helped
you in Toronto were on the low side, i felt. This year were four
people more or less full time running the event, with 15 more
doing odd jobs here and there. Every day about
18h(gym)+3*12h(confernce)=66h of work in one or an other form
On that note i heard from people in south america (with quite a
bit of local and national support) who wanted to hold next years
debconf/camp. This might be a good time for them to make their
preliminary plans heard.
