Updates from teams:
Flow of events on the conf day. Talk Director handles the broadcast (editing screens, etc). Talk Meister introduces, handles Q&A, etc. Live call happens through Jitsi and the speaker, talk director and meister have to be connected all the time.
- Akshay: How much do we want non-debian people to attend/view the events? Anupa/Raju: Previous debconf-es usually were offline and there were live streams. Participants were notified through IRC bot. Abraham: Debutsav had a debian track and free-software track which would attract non-debian people. We should use Mastodon, etc. Anupa: Micronews 10 minutes before every event - mirrored to Debian Mastodon.
- Anupa: We should start reviewing talks beforehand and confirm schedule, even though we will only publish the schedule after finalizing
- Mostly not expecting too many people watching live.
- Website link typo in confirmation mail - did not affect a lot of people
