    Recruiting debconf10 volunteers

    Hi all, I am a member of the local team preparing a bid to host
    DebConf10 in New York City.

    Here is the info for the bid:

    http://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf10/NewYork

    Here is the video from DebConf8 where Jimmy Kaplowitz first presented the draft of the bid.

    http://meetings-archive.debian.net/p...DebConf_10.ogg

    We have a few short months to flesh out a draft.

    If you are interested, please register for the DebianNYC mailing list and post your interest to the list.
    http://vireo.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/debiannyc

    We will be meeting here occasionally: IRC://irc.debian.org/debconf-nyc Feel free to stop by and introduce yourself.

    Also feel free to forward this to any interested parties.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    P.S. - The DebianNYC user group gets together every month or two, so if you are interested in joining other users and devs in the Debian family, feel free to join.
    P.S.S. - Here is note from the Ubuntu page on the relationship between Ubuntu and Debain: http://www.ubuntu.com/community/ubuntustory/debian

    Congrats. I am glad to see that NYC won the bid and hope that the light can shine on the rest of the state as well. I am unable to travel fast enough to get their from Western NY... but I will tip a virtual beer back for you.

    Congratulations!

    I'm in CNY but I'm not sure I can make it. I'll have to play it by ear.

    Re: Recruiting debconf10 volunteers

    No worries, for those of you that couldn't make it. Debconf10 is approximately a year and a half away. There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved.

    We have started a mailing list for those people that are interested in joining the DC10 local team.

    http://lists.debconf.org/mailman/lis...nf10-localteam

    Please feel free to subscribe and say hello. (It's currently low traffic, as much planning still happens on IRC).
