<<< DebConf6

As there seem to be some requirements that had not been fulfilled by the software that has been used to support the organisation of DebConf5, and I (HenningSprang) saw people talking about what other tools could be used, I have proposed to go for a structured approach; First analyze requirements for the software, then see what products meet them, or which ones come as close as possible and can easily enhanced with the missing features.

For DebConf6 we used the Comas conference management system. As one of the organizers is (luckily!) upstream for it, after each of the items where it is relevant, I will include its support level in Comas (or a short explanation on why it's not Comas' business ;-) ) in monospace font.
