[edit] DebConf4

DebConf 4 will be hold in Porto Alegre, Brazil, from May 26th to June 2nd, right before FISL (Internacional Free Software Forum).

This is a internal work page, not intended for people outside from the organizing committee. "Regular" information at our website: http://www.debconf.org/debconf4/


General TODO List

  • And conference documentation - this is a long term issue: we have to document our experience so people can reuse it in DebConf5, 6, 7...

Web Site TODO List

  • Mobile phone networks
  • A wiki page for people feedback

During the Conf

  • Ask local people to monitor groups during Debconf
  • Put a list on the web site and around the event with local DD and volunteers telephones
  • Have a first aid kit at SESC (medicaments for headache, etc)
  • During the subscription, confirm with the attendes, the name and the phone to contact in any emergency case.

<enrico> A useful thing that we had in Vis were facilitators: someone whose duty was to make things go smooth. An example of a facilitator role could be having a walk around from time to time and updating a big central whiteboard with all that is going on

[edit] DebConf4DiHardware

This page exists to track hardware that will be available for testing the D-iTest candidate between 27-30 May.


[edit] Hardware at DebConf4

  • A number of i386 desktop machines, reasonably modern. The conference has 30 or 40, we can borrow a few.


  • Jonas Smedegaard dr@jones.dk

I will bring a 1st generation Apple Ti Book (pretty common 15" PowerPC

laptop), Sharp Zaurus SL-C760 re-flashed into an SL-C860 (a

somewhat rare ARM-based handheld).


  • Daniel Ruoso daniel@ruoso.com

It may be possible to take my iMac DV+ with me I would just need a usb

keyboard, as mine isn't working very well. This would be my second try

on running linux on it (I gave up last time because I couldn't setup

firewire video capture + video editing on it and other several desktop

problems...). Needs Yaboot


  • Christian Perrier bubulle@kheops.frmug.org

i386 with Fire Wire for me if I don't forget my Docking Station.


  • Jeff Bailey jbailey@raspberryginger.com

I need to check Power Adapter s and such, but I should be able to bring a

netwinder.


  • Gustavo Franco

maybe a Sun ultra 1

Digital Infrastructure for Deb Conf4


Planned things:

  • WLAN and LAN
  • Local Debian mirrors for all architectures often syncronized
  • Printing Server
  • Scheduling Server (to schedule BOFs, official talks will be prescheduled)
  • Restaurant Server (inform or alter attendees' meal schedule)



We'll need <put the number here> APs for the WLAN and at least 10 16-port LAN switches and about the same number of hubs


We may have sponsored notebooks and/or desktops for the event. Anyway, be sure to bring your own notebook.
