Re: [Debconf-team] dc13 venue announcement?



Hi there!

I am sorry for being late, Real Life took all my time in the last days.
For future references, in case you expect something urgent from me, my
mobile phone number is in the Debian LDAP.

I did not follow the discussion on (I presume) IRC [1], here some notes:

a) I do not see why we use Vaumarcus and not 'Le Camp'.

b) I would use 'lake Neuchâtel' and not the French name

     <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Neuch%C3%A2tel>

c) I still fail to see the difference between mentioning Vaumarcus and
   "on the banks of Lac de Neuchâtel".  If finally DebConf13 will *not*
   be hosted at 'Le Camp', then it will probably *not* hosted near
   Neuchâtel either, given that the backup solutions are cities (Geneva
   or Zurich).  In any case, there is still a mention of Vaumarcus at
   line 24.

d) FWIW, exact dates were already decided *before* submitting the bid,
   also because 'Le Camp' is available for two weeks only on those
   dates.  So, I would remove that phrase entirely.

[1] please always report important points on the mailing list, for those
    who can not be on IRC most of the their time.

Here is not-yet-complete patch:
