[edit] Why?

Cheese is Good For You. Wine also helps. This C&W is the 12th official DebConf Cheese and Wine party. The first C&W was improvised in Helsinki during DebConf 5, in the so-called "French" room.

Cheese and Wine parties are now a tradition for Debconf. The event is very simple: bring good stuff from your country, preferably cheese, wine and|or any other good stuff that can be drunk or eaten. Even if you don't bring anything, feel free to participate: our priorities are our users and free cheese.

Some bits from previous C&W:

[edit] Cheese Trip

Departure: TBD

For people who would like to bring some cheese to the C&W but couldn't bring it from ${HOME}, we'll organize at least one cheese trip to a grocery store.

Note: (TBD) : finding a good local grocery store and some vehiculated volunteers.

[edit] FAQ

Can I participate to C&W (AKA eat and drink) if I couldn't bring anything?
A: Sure you can. No cheese control at entrance (however, see notes below). No "secret cheese cabal" checklist. But you can certainly find something to bring. No cheese? Maybe some nice bottle of <insert favourite $beverage here>. Or some nice thing to eat from your place. Whatever. Also please check the Cheese Trip item above.

A: You can help us! C&W helpers meetings will be indicated on this page and announced on debconf-announce.

I brought XXX and don't know where to store it
A: TBD. There will be a fridge on-site.
