It was announced publically. The schedule was available from the
Debian pages and it was on the LinuxTag pages. Well, it didn't say
Debian day, but it was mentioned that the Debian day was on Friday
What was missing was an announcement for debian-news. I've asked for
assistance when I realized that that I wasn't able to manage it on my
own, but didn't receive some, and the final schedule was made way too
late, so it wasn't properly announced on -news.
Something to learn? Sure, organise before it's too late. This does
affect everything: the CD, the booth, the debian day etc. pp. The CD
and the debian day were organised too late, nobody felt responsible
for them in time, that's the main problem from my point of view.

Like Russell said. I'm more than happy to host the Debian Day as
special event on Thursday before the regular free conference program

Well sure. That's entirely my fault since I wasn't able to schedule
things on the day before. Mea culpa! Things worked a little bit
different in Karlsruhe compared to Stuttgart, and not everything was
good. Like having to leave the exhibition hall at 10pm distracted me
from preparations for the next day. Also I failed to run supporter
meetings and create overview pages during LinuxTag. I'm working on an

Of course not, but if there are only geeks working and reading their
mail, sitting with the back to visitors, not responding to them,
is... err... somewhat confusing...
