Team

  • General: nattie, pwaring, tumbleweed, paddatrapper, highvoltage
  • Content: nattie, PaulWaring, acute, highvoltage

  • Video: DebConf Video team

Sponsors

MDCO#1 was highly experimental, bare bones and on a very short timeline. As such, we avoided sponsors because there was some risk involved. For MDCO#2, we don't strictly need sponsors but it might be nice to have them. This would need someone to co-ordinate it, so if you'd like to be part of (or the) sponsors team, step up or it won't happen :)

  • "L"AN party in the camp/conf "evenings" mostly polled/scheduled in advance to give time for players to sort out installation/setup hosting. [?tasked to: PhilMorrell?]
