Re: [PLUG] Debconf 20/21 in India

Thank you, Raju, for the wonderful presentation. It was a quite a nice experience in attending DebConf18 and meeting the Debian community. All I have seen that most of the people are inclined towards making happen a DebConf20 at India which initially we were not thinking about. They have forced us to bid this time and we have already accepted the challenge :) Let's do the hard work and win the bid.

Pune is definitely a good strategic city.
Close to Asia's 1 of the busiest airport i.e. Mumbai & accessible from
Bangalore,Hyderabad,Cochin & other metro cities by several mode of

Yes, definetely Pune is a good strategic city for various reasons we discussed.

I have a wild guess that University of Pune aka Savitribai Phule
university can help to host DebConf. 

Another host which I can think of is IISER Pune which has the really good infrastructure for providing the venue for DebConf. IISER has a really good campus with excellent auditoriums and Dormitories for stay and a lot of open space for various DebCOnf activities.  I have some connections with IISER Pune I can talk to them.

Another venue could be NCRA Pune and IUCAA Pune together as host with really good on campus stay and auditoriums and space for conference Dinner and parties. I have a really good connection with them also but in this case, we have to talk to both institutes.

If we plan in Kerala then NIT Calicut can also be considred as a good option or CSE Trivandrum.

I have attended Cent OS DOJO event in University Of Pune's campus few
years back arranged by Pune Linux User Group.

University Of Pune has many dormitories.
Date just need to be when its holiday time for university students I guess. :-)
