Fwd: MiniDebConf in April/May 2018 in Hamburg

Hi,

As discussed during DebConf17 I’d like to propose a MiniDebConf in Hamburg,
Germany, during April or May 2018.

The current idea is to have 3 days of hacking (MiniDebCamp) from Wednesday
until Friday followed by 2 days of talks and more hacking (MiniDebConf).

As for dates, my prefered venue has four options, please comment on their
suitability and other clashing events:

  • April 4th-8th 2018
  • April 18th-22nd 2018
  • May 2nd-6th 2018
  • or May 16th-20th 2018

I’ve spoken with Dock Europe (see below, “about the venue”) and we could
have
their three seminar rooms for 750€/day (in total) plus 36 beds (also in
total) for 800€/day. It’s not yet clear to me whether we’ll need all of
those
seminar rooms for the MiniDebCamp part or whether we’ll find another cheaper
solution in the house.

There are also 4 more big rooms suitable for hacking in the venue: the CCCHH
hackerspace, the cantina (which will also be used for serving food) and at
least two other places.

Help will definitly also be needed in these areas:

  • Finding sponsors
  • Content selection
  • Registration/frontdesk
  • Artwork & maybe t-shirts

What do you think? Shall I go and reserve^wbook the venue for one of these
dates?

I’d like to decide on this in the next two weeks or so. (Mostly to secure
booking of the location but also to allow you all to book trips early.)
I’d be absolutly fine if you think we should do it in some other German city
but I’d probably not be as involved in that…

What I previously wrote about the venue:

That venue is a big building complex owned by an artist cooperative, of
which the CCC Hamburg is also part of, as well as dock-europe.net, which is
an international education/training center with 3 talk rooms which can
be combined
into one big rom and which also has 36 beds on site, plus it’s in the center
of the city/Altona, so there’s plenty of other accomodation as well.

https://wiki.hamburg.ccc.de/English is an english description with some more
photos of the venue and the CCC hamburg hackerspace which I suppose we could
use as a fourth room for hacking.

http://dock-europe.net has some more infos/pics too.


cheers,
Holger

It would be good to try and coordinate the OSCAL’18 date to avoid a
clash with this event. Please tell them the dates you are looking at
for OSCAL’18.

There should be a significant number of Debian people present and unlike
the Mini DebConf in Cambridge, no visa is required.

Thanks for the headsup Daniel.

Could you refrain in the future from forwarding emails to the Forum? Since it appears like the original email author posted, not you. It also creates 2 posts, instead of one.

We are having a meeting on Thursday, so we can talk about the dates.

Where should I forward things like this in that case?

Can you try to fix that in the Discourse settings? I’ve never seen this
problem before and I doubt that I am the only person who is going to
forward something to the Open Labs community.

OK, you may also be able to discuss dates with people on IRC during or
before the meeting. You could try #debconf-team on OFTC (not freenode)

Well, you can copy and paste the original email into a new email of yours. Other people have done the same. It is not a huge deal but it looks different from the GUI, compared to the mailing list version you probably use. The main issue is that it looks like the OP is by someone else, not you.

Actually I see the name of the person that send the original e-mail in
the mailing list too. Discourse here rewrites the email address and
separates the original forwarded messege, and any text that the
forwarder added appears as a reply to the original email.

That’s even worse then.

Moral of the story: Copy paste emails, don’t forward them :slight_smile:

Is there a setting to stop Discourse doing that?

Otherwise any registered user could create a “forwarded” message using
the name of any other user and have some fun. This would bypass the
modest protection that comes from SPF and DKIM.

I don’t think so. It’s supposed to be like that. Well, anyone could spam, but it would be obvious it’s a fwd message once you open it. It’s still confusing in the first seconds.

This is already the case. Only the content is preserved.
