is there interest in a Debichem sprint at DebConf15?  I will certainly
be around, as I am one of the main organizers of the conference, and it
might be a good place to finally have a real-life meeting between more
than two Debichem people at a time :)

Obvious agenda item from my point of view would be planning for stretch
(jessie+1) and project-wide policy and QA, but we can surely can come up
with others.

Let me know who is interested/could potentially come!

Would your team benefit from a sprint but organizing it is too much hassle?

Are you looking for more people to join your project, but don't know how to
reach them?

The DebConf organisation team is happy to announce that right before DebConf15
this coming August in Heidelberg, Germany, we can host your team's sprint and
take care of the logistics for working space, food and accommodation. You just
need to come up with a plan, round up the team and let us know the sprint
topic, tasks and goals.

These sprints will take place during DebCamp (10‒14 August), and are
particularly suitable for teams and people who already plan to attend DebConf.
They can also be a great opportunity to attract other interested people, or
motivate contributors to join a new team or project. Participation in a sprint
can be considered as a DebCamp workplan for those that request sponsorship at
the time of their DebConf registration.

The main conference itself (DebConf, 15‒22 August) will be filled with talks
and other activities, but there can also be space there for sprints that would
benefit from having the larger Debian community at hand, giving a point of
entry for new team members, and a great way to get results from occasional

If your team is interested in hosting a sprint, please start by creating a wiki
page [1] and make sure it includes:

  * the topic,
  * goals and tasks to be accomplished,
  * the expected duration (one day? three days?),
  * and a section for prospective participants to sign up.

Then send the sprint idea to the debian-sprints mailing list [2] before
Thursday 30 April.

The content team is available to help shapping the sprint plans, as well as
with the coordination of space, dates and participants. Please notice that the
available space is limited and sprints will be scheduled on a first-come,
first-served basis.

Looking forward to hearing about your sprints,
The DebConf Content team.
