[edit] When?

July 25, 23:00

Note that the original planned schedule (21:30) overlapped with the dinner. So, we move the event after the dinner (23:00)

Setup scheduled to begin at 22:00. People who brought cheese are welcomed to join in helping in the identification of items.

[edit] Where?

Garden / Patio, close to the dinner room

Tables (from the dinner room) will be setup there.

Note: when you arrive please leave your wine/cheese in the fridge of the reception (note to self: I should explicitely say that red wine is 'no meant for going in a fridge).

[edit] Why?

Cheese is Good For You. Wine also helps.

Cheese and Wine parties are now a tradition for Debconf. The event is very simple: bring good stuff from your country, preferrable 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.

[edit] Questions?

Write to Christian Perrier <> or Nicolas François <>

[edit] Dinner exclusion list

Many of the attendees will decide to skip dinner altogether, or at least have a very light one, in order not to spoil the party to ourselves. We are quite close already to the party, but we should try to ask the caterers to prepare less food than usual so it does not get wasted. Please add your name to the following list to opt out of the dinner - I intend on handing them the reduced numbers by dinnertime tomorrow (Friday 24th).

  1. Gunnar Wolf
  2. Kurt Gramlich
  3. Roland Mas
  4. Andreas Tille
  5. Christian Perrier
  6. Eddy Petrișor
  7. Adrian Perez
  8. Simon Paillard
  9. Tomás González Dowling
