The DebConf organisation team is happy to announce that right before DebConf15
this coming August in Heidelberg, Germany, we can host your team's sprint and
take care of the logistics for working space, food and accommodation. You just

Then send the sprint idea to the debian-sprints mailing list  before
Thursday 30 April.
The content team is available to help shapping the sprint plans, as well as
with the coordination of space, dates and participants. Please notice that the
available space is limited and sprints will be scheduled on a first-come,
Looking forward to hearing about your sprints,
