[edit] Formalities

[edit] List of potential organizers

People interested to help in organization. Please add your name in your local wiki page, too!

If possible, please also note the things you want and can do for debconf11/Germany preparation and execution, and how much time and energy you are willing to invest. Sure, more is better, but an hour/week is better than nothing - and it's surely better to tell less and later do more, than tell you will do much and later do nothing!

And please note your experience in organizing meetings, especially your work for previous debconfs! We'll need that for the application as a venue.
