This of course means the schedule is full, so if you wanted to do a
talk, you'll have to wait 'till next year.
I've also received a number of replies to my request for people willing
to man the booth. I'm a bit embarrassed about this, but unfortunately I
have to say that I lost one or two names; so if you've told me that
you're willing to help out with the booth and your name is not on the
list, please yell. Thanks, and sorry.
My current shortlist of boot-people looks like this:
Alexander Schmehl <email@example.com>
Benoit Mortier <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Osamu Aoki <email@example.com> (not sure yet)
Frank Lichtenheld <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Noèl Köthe <email@example.com>
One final point: like last year, the FOSDEM people have insurance, too.
If you're taking hardware with you to FOSDEM, and you want it to be
covered, please send me the following information:
* type (laptop, pc, switch, ...).
* a serial number or something similar which is listed on the device's
* it's (approximate) value.
Please send that information as soon as possible; I have actually
received this request from the FOSDEM people a while ago already.
