Re: [Debian-NYC] Wheezy release party?

Babies and other family/friends are totally welcome. (My family will of course
be there.) Apartment is big enough that if you need some quiet place,
it can be arranged. My kids will likely be in the back family room, either
playing games or watching TV.

Since it sounds like there aren't alternatives being mooted, I am
assuming we are on, and went ahead and listed it on the DebianNYC wiki
page, and on the list of Wheezy release parties, here:
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianNYC and here:

I've also setup a wiki page for people to Signup for potluck, and/or
RSVP (RSVP is not required, just helpful.)


(We'll be providing: some beer, wine, cheeses, cold cuts, french
bread, and Crudités.)


P.S. - It's not to late to suggest an alternative plan, but we are
rapidly approaching that point, since we are less than a week away.
