Oldenburg Linux Developers Meeting 2003

1st Announcement

Moin everybody,

as always, it has taken quite some time to get the required confirmation from our University that we can hold the Oldenburg Linux Developers Meeting again.

Invitation to the 8th Oldenburg Linux Developers Meeting

A short overview:

URL:   http://oldenburger.linuxtage.de/Oldenburg2003/
What:  Oldenburg Linux Developers Meeting 2003 #8
Who:   Every developer interested in Linux on non-i386 platforms
       Every developer interested in developing the debian-installer
When:  September, 25th to 28th (Thursday noon to Sunday afternoon)
Where: University of Oldenburg, science building in Oldenburg Wechloy,
       northern Germany (roughly west of Bremen)

The meeting is organised by ffis e.V. Its goal is to provide developers a means to work in common on the non-i386 Linux ports and related topics and to further the exchange of ideas and discussion about the several ports. This year there will also be a group of people who will work on the new installer system for Debian. So one of the targets is to get a working debian-installer running on all platforms supported by Debian GNU/Linux.

If you have not attended any previous meeting, you might like to take a look at the meetings' website. There are links to pictures from former meetings as well.

Attendance is free of cost including food and beverage in the working rooms (although we are always thankful for donations). We will have dinner in some restaurants in Oldenburg (not yet decided which ones, though) if you like.

You don't have to attend from Thursday. This is just an offer for those of you who would like to and who can afford to come early. If you can't make it that early, simply join when you can afford it.

We will use several rooms, one for hacking on Linux, one for hacking on the debian-installer, and the others for sleeping.

Please bring a sleeping bag, camping mat or cot, towels, shower stuff, clothes and so on with you. There is a sports building of the univesity next to the one we stay in, which has showers we can use.

Besides this, of course you need to bring all the technical stuff with you: computers, monitors, technical documentation, network cabling, multiple-power-sockets for your systems and hubs or switches. The computing center of the university kindly provides us with network connectivity to the main rooms, but we need to build the LAN within the room ourselves.

A description on how to get to the science building in Oldenburg Wechloy is available here.

If you would like to attend the meeting, please send back the following form, so that we can calculate space, power and food.
