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

Debian Games bug day during DebCamp? Have a day where we pay some attention to bugs in game packages in debian.
- Have a schedule for minidebcamp, we can watch some previous related videos, or use this to demo games. Suggest having it sparsely populated to leave time for hacking / talking / playing games that were demoed / fixing bugs in games / etc.
"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?]
Places to promote
Places to send the CfP to once it is ready, and to publicise in general.
Not yet tasked:

- Debian mailing lists - which ones are relevant?
Useful info for speakers
Maybe add this to main page?
- Have run this event online before (track record)
- Have our own Jitsi instance (reliable)
- 200-300 "attendees"
- Videos recorded and available afterwards
