Well, no matter what date the local team will select there will always be people that cant attend and complain. You cant avoid that. While one would like to see the people on that list in Edinburgh, the local team has to find the best possible date together with the venue while keeping the costs in mind (we surely can go somewhere mid-July, if someone finds a sponsor who doubles DebConfs money. At least doubles). You can be sure that the local team considers the dates and tries as hard as possible to make it fit for as many people as needed (following the discussions in the debconf channels - there have been thoughts to modify the debcamp/debconf way to fit better in the schedules of the venue), so whatever date will get announced - it will be the one thats best for DebConf. -- bye Joerg <vorlon> since anyone who can get along with elmo must *surely* be part of the cabal. <Overfiend> vorlon: Not true. I've gotten along with elmo from time to time. We're just both ashamed of it.
