What is Debconf?
Debian Conference is the annual Debian developers meeting, an event filled with coding parties, discussions and workshops - all of them highly technical in nature. It will be held in Oaxtepec, Mexico, from May 14th to May 22nd 2006.
Previous Debian Conferences have featured speakers from around the world. They have also been extremely beneficial for developing key Debian software components, including the new Debian Installer, and for improving Debian's internationalization.
Development teams like debian-installer and debian-edu also have the possibility of meeting beforehand for undisturbed collaborative work.
Do not come to Debcamp for reading mail or surfing the web. Instead prepare well for the tasks you want to work on and let the organizers know if you and your group need special equipment or space to work efficiently.
Meanwhile, users, decision-makers and the members of the press interested in discovering the benefits of Free Software and Debian users are invited to attend Debian Day, an open house event that will kick-off Debconf6 with presentations of general interest, on Saturday, May 13th.
