Some ground rules:
- any participant of Debconf3 is free to edit the content here.
- please use this space to "publish" information about hotels, debcamp ideas, etc.
Deb Camp is a hacking sprint that is just before DebConf3. Please put stuff related to DebCamp there; e.g. there is "Deb Camp Tasks", "Deb Camp Workers", "Deb Camp Talks".
There is a day when we could all bring in some interesting food, so write "What Food Will I Bring For All To Try" :)
There is information about Staying At The Gym.
We should probably collect Notes On Deb Conf3Talks here.
Check out the local weather forecasts. It's hot.

 What Food Will I Bring For All To Try
You could bring some special on national food to Debconf, so everybuddy and everyone could try it. Please write here, what will you bring.
- aigarius: A classical dark bread from Latvia + few kilos of chese with caraway seeds from Latvia
- Lo-lan-do: One litre of "pastis" (see http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pastis for more info). Fits in the import quota, and it's usually diluted in water so one litre will serve many people :-)
- part: salty licorice candy from Finland, has ammonium chloride
- Tv: I just noticed I have some salmiac flavored chewing gum, which was totally unknown atleast to some american friends earlier, so if you want to taste it, find me on IRC.
 Staying at the Gym
If you are staying in the gym during DebConf3, you should probably bring
- a lock (there will be lockers to store your less valuable things in),
- a towel,
- a camping pad,
- a sleeping bag, and
- a power strip.
The gym is only open during mornings and evenings; it will be locked during daytime. Only people with a sleeping cat on their badge will be allowed.
There will most likely be internet access available, but please do not start a hacking session there, as people who will not be staying there for the night cannot participate. Please remember that it is a place to sleep; keep quiet.
There's room for a barbecue and such outside.
There are two shower rooms. Please add a note on how the male/female situation is solved here.
There is a place for smokers outside. Please smoke only there and put the cigarette butts in the container meant for that.
