There's also a LUGS special event (Furka steam train tour) on that
Sunday, so I would be there probably only Friday evening to Saturday
evening or so.

I just asked one of the main organizers on IRC. Rooms for Friday are
already "sold out" though, because there's another conference at ETH
on Friday, too. :-/

Seems still possible.

I personally will probably will have nearly no time for a BSP during
FrOSCamp and therefore would prefer one of the other options...

Yep. We would be able to extend this to Sunday, but will be thrown out
in the (probably late) afternoon for cleaning up the rooms since the
semester starts on Monday after FrOSCamp.
FUDCon is Friday to Sunday, too.

Hrm, just a yes/no Doodle, no yes/only-if-necessary/no poll. :-/

No mirror necessary at ETH, there are one official and at least on
inofficial pushed mirrors at ETH. No IPv6 though.
Will resume with FrOSCamp Debian booth organization when I'm back from
holidays (i.e. after Monday).
