For Indian consulate purposes, could you send me a PDF of the invitation

I can design you a letterhead in gimp if you like :-)
/me scratches the head.
As far as designing the letterhead is concerned +1 to that. The
head-scratching part is where should debian-in be located as it's a
Pan-India organization (or rather would like to be).
I live in Pune, while Praveen and Kartik are in mumbai, we have few
people in Karanataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
If somebody or an institution is willing to be temporary headquarters
of debian-in we can go ahead with that.
Perhaps the university can be the sponsoring organization if the
conference is being held under its auspices? But if you are collecting
sponsorship money or goods this should be addressed soon rather than later
as if India is anything like USA there could be tax implications or
The foss.in people were very well organized and knowledgable in these
matters. Perhaps you could consult one of them?
But as for now, I think it would be sufficient to write Debian.in and the
conference venue as the address. I doubt anyone will check too closely.
