DebConf final dates: DebCamp 17 – 23 July & DebConf 24 – 30 July. Decision has been made last week by the local team.

Well, it’s official, after 4 hours of debating and arguing, the final decision has fallen! Competition was rough but we did it, and all thanks to Adnan!

As for the future, I intend to do much more and dedicate myself to this project! [...]

Well, 3 more days left until the final decision of DebConf Team regarding the DebConf11 bid. The bid will be held on 27th February and will probably last several hours. The time of the bid is 17:00h (normal GMT). The meeting will occur in channel #debconf-team on irc.debian.org (aka irc.oftc.net) in English.
As I mentioned before, I’m interested in helping out our local Debian team in making this possible. I joined newsgroup and I’m always on irc channel #debconf11-bosnia. I’ve informed Adnan (Team Leader) that I’m available to help in every way I can and I’ve already signed up for “DebConf11 decision meeting” event, which will take place on 27th and 28th of February…
