[edit] Debconf todo: Conference Management System

This is a list of requirements or wishlist features, sorted by the time they are needed first.

  1. Registration What do we need from people at registration time?
    • irc nick
    • name, email, books they want, room mates
    • arrival and departure time, flight numbers?
    • want to participate at keysigning party? Registration is basically done - Arrival, departure, flight numbers and KSP participation can be easily added. registration time (chistmas)
  2. Mailing Lists automatic subscription and removal to deconf mailinglists registration time
  3. Password Handling for website, conference network, perhaps even mailinglist(?), (using mod_kerberos for fast and easy authentification during the conf?) I would stay out of going into mod_kerberos - We have already the whole system based on Apache::Session... although, if someone volunteers to doing it... :) Just keep in mind that Comas was not just planned to run under Apache (although it does right now), so... Well, I would like any change to be mapped into the Comas model registration time
  4. Lists create room lists, arrival and departure lists between registration and reconfirmation
  5. notification system remind people to attend talks, book food, book trips? does this need an irc/mail interface? is this the same notification system that notifies people to reconfirm their registration before registration time? before reconfirmation
  6. Talks/bofs Management manages talks/bofs <-> auditoriums <-> interested participants <-> best day (when most interested people are at the conference). The conference system right now manages the first relation, and the second relation is implemented a bit differently, but can be somewhat easily be made. The third relation... Well, help wanted :) between reconfirmation and conference start
  7. DebConf5COMASTalkScheduling Finding potential for parallelizing talks/bofs by identify disjoint set of people wanting to attend different talks and put those talks into different rooms at the same time if possible, minimizing the overlap. Needs to be done, right? A. between reconfirmation and conference start
  8. room booking (prefere to share a room with participants X and Y) or see to it that people are distributed evenly over all available rooms reconfirmation time
  9. trip booking (want to participate in certain recreational activities) during reconfirmation(?) an during conference
  10. Name Tag Printing (even late arrivals who show up spontanious) Done. conference start
  11. food booking (when do people want to eat at debconf, when not? what kind of food at what day?) during conference
