with this e-mail, I would like to send out some more details for the
upcoming LibreOffice Hackfest, which takes place from September 2nd to
4th in Munich.
1. Wiki page and emergency contact
For up-to-date information, please keep an eye on the official wiki page
at http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Hackfest2011 - best is to print
that page out shortly before you travel to Munich.
In case of an emergency, my mobile number is in the signature of this
e-mail and on the wiki page, so you can reach me.
2. Venues and sleeping
I just added information on the two venues at the wiki page, and
information for car drivers.
It is possible to sleep at Café Netzwerk, although we try to organize
couchsurfing instead. If you want to sleep at Café Netzwerk, please ping
me in advance, and do *not* just add your name to the list. I just
managed to get everyone to couchsurfing, then a few new names with
sleeping at Café Netzwerk popped up without pinging me, which makes the
whole process a bit complicated. ;-)
For those who plan to sleep at Café Netzwerk: You need a sleeping bag
and a mattress, because we have to sleep on the plain floor, there are
no beds. Be aware that Café Netzwerk has no showers, just normal
restrooms. The LiMux office has showers we could use, however.
A call especially to our friends from Munich: If you want to give some
friendly hackers a sleeping place, please let me know directly, so we
can coordinate. Be assured that all participants are quite nice and
behave friendly. ;-)
4. Add your e-mail address
On the participants list in the wiki, some mail addresses are missing. I
would like to ask everyone to add your address, so we can reach you
5. Food and beverages
The LiMux project team will try to organize breakfast for Saturday and
Sunday. In case you do not want to participate, please let me know in
advance, so we can buy accordingly. Otherwise, feel free to skip
breakfast at the hotel, and eat together with us. ;-)
Italo Vignoli will cook pasta for lunch on Saturday, more details are in
the wiki. In case you do not want to join, please let me know as well,
so we know the amount of pasta to make.
On Friday evening, we will go out for dinner. Saturday's dinner and
Sunday's lunch will be determined on the fly, based on what we are
hungry for. ;-) Please note that participants have to pay for food on
their own, it is *not* paid for by the organizers.
6. Agenda and timetable
As the Hackfest is some sort of unconference, there is no fixed agenda
with items to be worked on. In the wiki, we have compiled a list of
topics and issues to work on, the rest will be decided on the fly and ad
hoc at the venue. This sounds rather chaotic, but usually works out
quite well. ;-) We have, however, compiled a little timetable in the wiki.
So, now I hope this e-mail didn't cause more confusion than it helped,
and I look forward to meeting all of you in Munich! Have a look at your
inbox the next days and on the wiki page, in case we some details change.
