I think this is a good idea as well. and let's add a debian-key signing
party to the schedule :)

The open-video alliance around the lumiera-team is also considering to
have a meeting (subconference) at LAC2010.  I assume there'll be some
overlap of deb-mm and OVA-PPL, anyway.

However I do not know if there's enough space; but basically a
class-room - preferably open until late - with WiFi & coffee-machine
will suffice; what do you think? Do we need a projector / live-streaming
 etc for that?

@Marc: is there such a place at the HvK?
