View Full Version : Recruiting debconf10 volunteers

September 8th, 2008, 03:17 AM
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:


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


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.

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.


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.

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

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.


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