Keeping the tradition alive we will organise another Linux developers meeting in Oldenburg this year at the last weekend of September. This year, however, we will be able to use the facility from Wednesday to Sunday, hence, one day longer than before.

There were loud complaints last year about the meeting being too short, so it will be extended by one day this time. The meeting will take place at the University of Oldenburg in the scientific building in Oldenburg Wechloy.

the goal of this developers meeting 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.

We will have dedicated working and sleeping rooms as before. We should be able to use three more rooms during the nights in case the number of attending developers is too high for the two dedicated sleeping rooms. We will be able to use the shower facility of the sports department nearby.

This year Debian developers will join us again for work on the new debian-installer. They will probably want to test the installer on some "obscure" hardware they don't normally have access to, so don't worry if you should receive such a request.

We will have dinner together in a restaurant in the evening. A preliminary plan is on the web already, but the restaurants and the order may still change. We will have a barbecue on Friday for this is the tenth developers meeting already.

As usual we will have a never-ending breakfast in the large working room. I will get rolls each morning and ensure that there will be butter, cheese, saussages, jam, Nutella and stuff. I'll also take care of non-alcoholic fluids.

Attendance is free of cost including food and beverage in the working rooms (although we are always thankful for donations, EUR 10-20 per person should cover the expenses). However, for the barbecue on Friday instead of a restaurant we would be thankful if you could take a stake in the expenses, EUR 5-10 should cover the costs.

Beside machines, equipment and documentation you'll need to take with you a sleeping bag, maybe a camping mat or cot, towels, shower suff, personal toilett stuff, maybe medicine, clothes, mug and plate are optional but helpful.

You'll find routing information on the website mentioned above.
