Sleeping, Eating, Drinking

Sleeping in the hotel, breakfast, coffee flatrate and drinks are included in the low fee we have to pay. We have to organize lunch and dinner on our own. In the past we managed to pay everything with the money from our sponsors, so you do not have to pay anything.

Cost/Sponsorship

We have pay some costs for every person:

  • If n=number of persons, overall amount of money needed: n * 60 euros

Additional money is needed for food and maybe travel sponsorship

We're looking for sponsors from now on, so far we have an agreement with these companies:

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY SPONSORS YET!

Thomas

  • which things changed in squeeze (for e.g. locale and keyboard settings via debconf?)
  • config space via http, wget a compressed tar file of config space, maybe use lzma (W), patch from wlademar
  • ainsl should supply more information in exit code (W)
  • debian/rule with new debhelper version (W)
  • fcopy and preinst, see #573044 (W)
  • add new scripts: collect-mac, edit-dhcpd (W)
  • determine which files are changed in nfsroot by make-fai-nfsroot. The nfsroot would be more generic if install client could receive those files, insterad of m-f-n writing them into the nfsroot
  • new variable FAI_RAMDISK should hold a list of all directories which will be put into a ramdisk (W)
  • order of packages in install_package. Is there need for a PRE and POST section? Packages which will be installed before/after all other packages? (D)
  • simple progress bar using dialog/gauge or fai-progress or plymouth (D)
  • enhance fcopy so it replaces variables in templates (D)
  • use fcopy for sources.list in prepareapt (D)
  • fcopy: remove -p (D)
  • remove setup_harddisks (D)
