Submissions for DebConf8 wanted


this is a draft of a post which should end up on times.debian.net and 
elsewhere. Please give feedback, as I'm much too tired to think and write 

The links to the wiki pages will need to be fixed as the new wiki.debconf.org 
replaces wiki.debian.org... 



future DebConfs should be even better prepared than they are now, thats why we 
(debconf-team) decided to plan DebConfs for two years in advance from now.

And to achieve this, we need to plan once for one and a half years in advance 
(this means deciding around new year 2007 about DebConf8), so that at 
DebConf7 in Edinburgh, we can decide about DebConf9 - and thus, two years in 
advance :-)

So at the last debconf-team meeting we came up with the following timeline:

Submissions until December 31st 2006
Clarification-Phase: until January 31st 2007
Decission: February, the 8th 2007

This means: until December 31st we want to see submissions from the cities. 
You need to create http://wiki.debian.org/DebConf8/YourCity and answer the 
questions from http://wiki.debian.org/DebConfLocationCheckList and
http://wiki.debian.org/DebConfPriorityList there (in your page). 

Until January the 31st 2007 we will ask you for details and further 
information, which you should answer on your wiki-page.

Then, on February the 8th, we will have team-meeting on IRC to make the 
decission according to the criteria we used for the Debconf7-decission. 
(###cant find the wiki page atm :(###)

Right now, http://wiki.debian.org/DebConf8 already has some proposals, but 
nothing specific. 

So please go on and create http://wiki.debian.org/DebConf8/YourCityOrCountry.

See you at a DebConf near your $home! :-)


P.S.: And off course, you can also start planning for DebConf9 now ;-)
