Debian SnowCamp 2018

Winter in Europe can be grey and boring, and FOSDEM is too short to
satisfy our need to meet Debian people; isn’t this a good time to spend
near the italian lakes, where the weather is dry and relatively warm,
for an event in the SunCamp style?.

Like the SunCamp this is not a conference, but more a DIY DebCamp where
space is provided but everything else is up to the attendants.

Debian SnowCamp 2018

Laveno (VA), Italy
February 22-25, 2018
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents/it/2018/SnowCamp

If you have any question feel free to join us on the IRC channel:
#SunCamp@OFTC.

How to register

To register for the event add yourself to the table on
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianEvents/it/2018/SnowCamp
and start looking for room mates.

If at the end of december there are at least 15 people registered as
staying at the hostel the event will happen and you will have two weeks
to pay your stay at the hostel (payment details will be provided closer
to the date).

Thanks for sharing @pocock. As mentioned before many times please do not forward emails but create a new post. I understand that forwarding emails I’d convenient, but it creates many issues such as:
-Double posting (it seems like it is posted from the original sender and it is confusing.
-it creates a new user every time you forward the email.

Let me know if there is something unclear from the above. Thank you.

Actually, I removed the “Forwarded” line from the top of the email before forwarding it but that doesn’t seem to be enough to work around the bug in Discourse

Do you know which part of the forwarded email triggers this issue? Is the bug tracked somewhere in meta.discourse.org?

No, but I would ask you that until there is a solution about this to post in a way that doesn’t generate the problem. One solution would be to create a new post and use the quote feature to repost the information.
Thank you again for sharing the info.

The bug is here:
https://meta.discourse.org/t/forwarded-emails-and-email-in-topic-creation/15839/28

Until this gets resolved the preferred way to deal with this is not forwarding emails to the list, but instead copy- pasting the content and giving some context manually I’d suggest.
