University mail-server malfunction, admins on easter holiday.  Any
further questions?

Hey, isn't that what CeBIT is for?  To scounge off other boothes? ;)

I did so sometimes as well.

As long as we get our DVDs sponsored, I don't like to see a general "DVD
for x EUR"-rule.  Since Debians DVDs are normaly sponsored (while
Skolelinux burns their DVDs themself), the idea of taking donations for
the DVDs was to have a small protecive barrier against "pack rats" /
"oposums" / "Beutelratten".  And I would not like to change that

What do you suggest?  That we make a big announcement, to invite people
for the next event?  Don't we do that currently?

Yours sincerely,
