Debian Med Blend meeting in Lübeck

It seems somewhat amazing, but most of the Debian Med contributors have never met in person before. We think that to maximise the user experience, we shall get together, talk about more than our individual packages and identify some lower and some not-so-low-hanging fruits.

Program

We should have Saturday (29th) and Sunday (30th) to truly concentrate on our work. Participants should (and most do) arrive on Friday (28th) and leave on Monday (31th). Teams will split and summarise at coffee breaks on their respective status/issues.

Friday is the day for setups, individual training and learning about the novel developments and on-hand insights into problems at another site, allowing for the teams' detailed scheduling for Saturday and Sunday. Monday will be used to wrap up, literally and in writing.

Teams / subgroups

Objectives:

  • www.jalview.org related
    • create biolinux/debMed package for Jalview 2.6.x
    • create experimental JABAWS package for biolinux

  • Examine and Resolve dependency issues :
    1. Jmol

Travel

  • Hotel rooms are already reserved for you have not expressed the wish to organise it yourself.
  • When coming by train, use http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de and select Lübeck-Travemünde Hafen as destination. From there it is 150m or so to the Hotel. If you miss that one and exit at Lübeck-Travemünde Strand, at daylight with not too much luggage, just have a 20 minutes walk at the water for about a mile or so till you arrive at the Hotel. Every non-tourist should know it. If it is dark already then just stay seated in the train that is going back and forth to Lübeck and will stop at Travemünde Hafen again, anyway. Lübeck is on the connection between Hamburg and Copenhagen and we have another ICE to Munich plus all the local trains to the well-connected Hamburg.

  • When flying in, be aware of ?RyanAir nicely serving Lübeck. I collect you from there or you can make it by public transport. Hamburg Fuhlsbüttel is about 90km away. There are busses going to Lübeck (look for AUTOKRAFT) but I usually take the trains. When you arrive close in time, you can also share a cab (there are big ones), but let me order it from here .... should then be about 80 Euros.

  • When coming by ferry to Travemünde Skandinavienkai, take a bus from the Terminal to Travemünde itself. Lines 30 or 31 will drop you right in front of the Hotel after two kilometers or so.

Keysigning

When dealing with Debian packages it is always a good idea if you have a GPG key signed by a Debian Developer. So this meeting is a good chance to get your key signed. If you are not comfortable with GPG creation and signing just have a look here:

Make sure you have a printout of your GPG key and a passport at hand. Here are nice templates for business cards where you can include your Fingerprint easily.
