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.

Agenda

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.

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.

Results

A summary was sent to http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2011/02/msg00026.html. Andreas had already provided a more detailed list. Will blogged about it here. Others may follow suit.
