First draft of press release for DebConf12


I've taken the content of this email from:


DebConf12 in Managua, Nicaragua
After much delibration in a two-and-a-half hour meeting on IRC,
the DebConf team agreed that the Managua, Nicaragua bid should be
selected to host DebConf12. 

The Nicaraguan team made their proposal along with a team from Belo
Horizonte, Brazil. These teams had been preparing their bids since mid-2010,
seeking venues and local sponsors in their respective cities and
countries. More details may be found on the organizers' wiki:

In thirteen years of DebConf history, this will be the first time that
the Debian developer conference takes place in the Central American
region. It is also the first time that the DebConf Team received a
proposal from a Central American country. Both teams did great work in
their bids and presented comprehensive proposals.

The DebConf organizers congratulate the future organizers of
DebConf12, and thank both teams for their efforts.

The venue decision for DebConf13 will be made in twelve
months. Proposals should be submitted by 31 December 2011 to be
eligible for consideration.

About DebConf 
DebConf is the Debian Project's developer
conference. In addition to a full schedule of technical, social and
policy talks, DebConf provides an opportunity for developers,
contributors and other interested people to meet in person and work
together more closely. It has taken place annually since 2000 in
locations as varied as Spain, Argentina, and the United States.

DebConf11 starts on Sunday 24 July, and ends Saturday 30 July
2011. The conference will be held in Banja Luka, Bosnia and

DebConf will be preceded by DebCamp, from Sunday 17 July to Saturday
23 July 2009. DebCamp is a smaller, less formal event giving an
opportunity for group work on Debian projects.

On Sunday 24 July 2011, DebConf Open Day will take place at the
site. The Open Day is a short conference aimed at Debian users, and
others interested in learning more about free software.
