report from the videoteam sprint in November 2011 in Paris


in November 2011 the DebConf / Debian videoteam held a sprint in Paris, kindly 
hosted in the offices of irill.org


The meeting was "only" attended by six people, but IMO it was still a success 
as we managed to get quiet a lot done.

The rough and unedited notes:

Things done
- contacted Stephen Marron who wanted to write a p2card driver for linux 3.0
- send notes about dvswitch UI discussion with Carl to frankp who is working 
on improving the UI
- contacted headset guys from the UK (who are building a autonomous headset 
solution for gaming use, which we can also use for inter communication)
- put cables in ziplock backs, remove spurious labels, put up new ones
- took pictures of all our gear
- updated http://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/Videoteam/HardwareInventory
- wrote a paragraph for 
- set up streaming for IRILL
- hacked on dvswitch
- discussed informal meeting with froscon + ccc videoteams, who are also using 
- hacked on adding prerolls for the dc11 videos
- had several discussions
- had fun :)
- and "of course", we also added new items to our todo-list :-)

I'd like to use this opportunity to shout a big thanks to IRILL for their 
support, for hosting us in November, for providing storage for our hardware 
and for lending us their hardware! IOW: you rock & and your contributions 
enable us to document Debian & free software development (meetings) a lot 

And then I want to thank everybody who donated to Debian - even though this 
meeting used little monetary resources, over the last five years quite some 
Debian money was spent to improve our work. Thanks to all of you!

If you want to donate to Debian, please see http://www.debian.org/donations - 
and if you want to help the videoteam, please join #debconf-video and our 
mailing list. We always needs helping hands for the events we cover (i.e., 
last weekend, FOSDEM) but we're also looking for contributors being able to 
code in python and c++.
