  • Create a WEB-banner and distribute/advertise it.
  • Add the event to all calenders you know off.

Food & drinks

What kind of computers do we need, who can bring his?

  • AlainKnaff: can bring 1 laptops
  • VincentBremaud: 1 laptop (Saturday afternoon and Sunday the whole day), possibily 1 desktop computer


  • We should have a couple of CDs of various distributions to hand out. 2 of each kind should be largely enough
(most people actually have either already bought a version themselves, or buy one at our stand)
 * SuSE
 * Kubuntu
 * Fedora
 * Knoppix (possibly customized LiLux version, needs time (!), yes i think its too late now, but for next year we could think of it ...)
 * Debian
 * Mandrake
 * OpenCD
 * Plan for enough blank CDs in case we run out of one distro
 * Ubuntu & Kubuntu may be shipped mid june, we have to prepare some downloaded versions.
    !! would be important to have a lot of ubuntu dapper drake CDs as the desktop course will be based on it !! (PascalSteichen: can provide some download versions, but i would be nice to have some original version, wasn't there a shipping for the LinuxFest ? we should have got them by now)
