Why do we need an association in Switzerland?
- no personal liability with an association
- sign contracts
- receive money
- tax exempt status (if reachable)
- separate Debian money from personal money
Summary: The swiss local team agrees that we need some sort of legal umbrella which is the legal organizer of DC13. No one is willing to personally vouch for DC13 without this. This would mean that they would have to take the full legal liability themself.
 Matrix DebConf13 and debian.ch
During past discussions mainly two options were considered:
DebConf13: we will create a new association under the Swiss law.
debian.ch: we will organize the event under the umbrella of debian.ch.
