A final report is produced after every DebConf. It is very important for acquiring repeat sponsors.

Want to contribute? Easy: just pick an article from below, claim it on this page, and try writing something. The final report has two primary goals: let sponsors know what their donations went to and that they are appreciated, and to let future organizers learn from us.

Most articles are 200-500 words (3-6 paragraphs) and written informally. Don't worry about making perfect English - we will have plenty of proofreading later. For now, it is the content that is important.

You can see the progress so far. You can also help to revise these texts.

If you don't have access to the DebConf reports svn repository, you can send your drafts to someone to commit for you. We look forward to your contributions!
