AIUI it's not necessarily that they wanted to keep track of money, but
some of the people really enjoy working on the booth and talking to
all the random people. (Hi nattie!) Given that, I'm quite happy to let
them stay at the booth. Keeping the formal list of who's in charge at
what time is definitely a good plan, and I'd second the suggestion of
having a printed copy at the booth.
For the record, by my reckoning we sold:
10 pin badges
and some (unknown number) of posters and bags and maybe other stuff.
For that lot we took in EUR 2,981.67.
I've already given Hanna EUR 150 for the cost of the pendants. Pixie
took EUR 74 for the DV tapes bought for recording the devroom and
stock for the video team. I'm about to send EUR 100 to Joerg for the
Anything else will go into debian-uk funds for the rest. If I've
missed anybody out who believes they're owed money (e.g. for the
posters/bags/whatever else), please let me know and we'll sort things
Wouter, thanks very much for doing the booth/devroom organisation yet
