I think that was a double-misunderstanding then: when I wrote "if it
doesn't need to follow the *Camp pattern too closely", I wasn't
referring to the naming pattern, rather, I was referring to the
character of the event.  In other words, I was suggesting that that if
the character of the event is more flexible, forward to debian-events-eu
to see who else wants to come to Dublin.

Dublin has a lot of free software and Debian enthusiasts who are likely
to come out of the woodwork when they hear a Debian event is taking
place.  That is something that couldn't happen so easily when the other
*Camp events took place away from cities.

So while I don't want to suggest any more about what the format will be,
it may be helpful to anticipate a wider range of visitors and people who
never came to a Debian event before.

Other ideas would be welcome too, I was just hoping to get the
discussion rolling.

I'm around Dublin again from 10-20 November.  If anybody wants to meet
up for pints or keysigning during that time please say so.
