DebConf11 : Bid
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.
So far, there are only 3 proposals in bid: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Germany and Ecuador. We’ve decided to go with Banja Luka as the city where it will be held, Germany with Munich and Ecuador with Quito. To be honest, competition is tough, Germany has quite a local team, and so does the Ecuador. BUT, we did hell of a job, preparing our presentation for the bid, and all thanks to one man, who made this possible Adnan Hodzic aka AbsintheSyringe. Wiki is ready, team is ready and tons of new proposals and sponsors are showing up. Not to be a pessimist, but we have quite a stronger and more prepared bid presentation.
So here we are, waiting for a final decision to fall. I really do hope we will get this bid, not only for Bosnia and IT.ers, but for the whole Balkan and all those who’re even slightly interested in filed of Information Technologies. Anyone interested:
