*argh* Must be very hard to understand. The "Karlsruher Messe und
Kongresszentrum" short KMK is the owner of all the halls we use. They are a
commercial organisation not some kind of wellfare from the goverment. They
want to make money with their infrastructure not sponsor you. And the
LinuxTag e.V. will not give you more space cause the Debian booth itself is
one of the bigest sponsored projects. So please stop whining and accept
that you cannot use everything like you would like to use it.
Be happy with the solution for the hacking arear or organize a sponsor for it.
