Subject: Arch Linux Conference Online 2021
There will be no Online Arch Conf this year
We are super excited to announce that the Arch Linux Conference 2020 is going to
be held online on the 10th and 11th of October.
The CFP has been published and everyone is free to submit talks and lightning
talks from today until the 18th of September. If you have other ideas please do
# Pre-recorded talks
All talks should be pre-recorded and sent to the team by the video submission
deadline. You will be notified if the talk has been accepted shortly after the
submission deadline has passed.
# Important Dates
* Conference date: 10th - 11th of October
* Submission deadline: 18th of September
* Video submission deadline: 5th of October
Streaming details are going to be published through September as there is still
some more planning required for this part :)
We are still going to hold regular meetings over mumble and general planning in
#archlinux-conf @ freenode until the conference starts in October. If you want
to get involved and help out please do reach out and join the meeting :)
Cheers from the Conference Team!
Because of COVID-19 I assume most people have had some conference plans
cancelled this year. FroSCon has had an Arch Linux devroom the past years, but
as we are not meeting physically I guess that isn't happening either. Thus I
want to try rally some people and have an online Arch Linux conference/devroom.
There are not any major ambitions really. This can be a few hours an evening, or
a weekend event. We will see what we figure out :)
Some of the ideas I have had so far is as roughly:
* Team Q&A
* team member and the wider community
* Interactive streams
* See how packagers do their work?
* Arch Linux installation speedruns(?)
Feel free to email me offlist, or poke me on other platforms, if you have other
great ideas that could work!
To organize we would need some help and might need some roles filled. This is a
shortlist of the ones I can come up with. But I'm sure there are more tasks and
* Help figuring out streaming
* Planning and handling CFP
There is no requirement to be on the Arch team to contribute. If you think you
have anything to contribute, please do come talk with me! Need every help one
can get :)
Below is a suggested meeting date for interested parties to attend. I'm unsure
if it's going to be mumble or purely text based.
Date of meeting:
4th of August
19:00 CEST (UTC+2) - https://everytimezone.com/s/a5112249
IRC: #archlinux-conf @ freenode
Next week, on the 28.1.20 from 19:00 to 22:00 at TAMI we will have an Arch
During this meetup we'll meet each other and share user experience: how did
I solved some bug and what I learned from it so everyone will be able to
learn from it. I'll also provide help with adding packages to AUR.
Snacks and soft drinks will be provided.
TAMI is a community makerspace that resides in Kibbutz Galuyot Rd 45, Tel
Aviv-Yafo. Third floor, studio 106. If you want to come please RSVP in
meetup or facebook (but not both) so we'll be able to prepare enough snacks.
For more info about TAMI (Which offers it's services free of charge):
See you there!
Last year at FOSDEM we held a dinner with 15 people, some members from the Arch
team and some users that wanted to join. It was a great event and people had a
nice dinner with some nice chats afterwards on various pubs.
For this year I plan to do the same with some changes. First of all, we are
going to be holding it on saturday around 18:00 - 19:00 as opposed to friday.
This is to ensure people are able to arrive friday evening, AND keep their
phones after their dinner. I'm still looking for mine :/
To make it managable I'll cap the attendees to around 15 people. Priority for
members of the Arch team (developers, trusted users and support staff). Any free
spots after this can be taken by anyone interested :). Send an email *offlist*
so I have some ability to keep track and inform you about further booking
The users requesting spots will get a headsup the week before FOSDEM to give all
staff a chance to reply. Please ask me if you have any questions :)
I have again CC'ed arch-dev-public since I don't actually know how many people
watch arch-events (hinthint subscribe!). Sorry for the noise, and please do tell
me if we are better off not cross-posting emails like these :)

Probably a tad later then :) Nothing has been booked so I'll just move it an
hour or something. Not going to force you to pick between our awesomesauce Arch
dinner and your talk, even though I know you'd obviously pick the dinner!
The pros and cons of copypasting emails from earlier events :D
I have created a user meetup during 36C3 that will take place the 27th of
December from 20:00 and onwards. The intentions is to have two or three short
presentations followed by some community Q&A and discussions with the team.
If there is anyone going that want to discuss something, email me and we can see
if it's possible to facilitate for some dedicated topics :)
Looking forward to see new faces!
(Yes, I did copypaste the mail from last year)
Chaos Communication Camp is happening the upcoming week and as with any CCC
event we have Arch team members attending. Jelle, shibumi, coderobe, alad, david
and me hanging around different assemblies.
I have registered a meetup, similar to the one we did at 35C3, on Thursday 22nd
of August 19:00. The plan is to have 2-3 short talks. So far we have planned one
where Jelle talks about contributing to Arch, and I'll have one talking about
Arch Linux and reproducible builds. If you have a suggestion feel free to email
After this we will try have a Q&A/Community discussion session like during
congress. It worked well and people seemed to enjoy it the last time.

I also packaged Arch Linux stickers. A lot of them, so come find me :)
Due to the corresponding number of requests I've received, I've decided to extend
the deadline for the CfP submission for the Arch DevRoom at this year's FroSCOn another
You will find all the details at https://monochromec.com/Arch_DevRoom_CfP.html.

Due to some last-minute cancellations, a few slots opened up at this years DevRoom planned for Saturday afternoon at
FrOSCon. You'll find the full schedule here: https://programm.froscon.de/2019/schedule/1.html (we have the room C117).
No need to send in a proposal, just show up and be prepared to speak (slides or no slides :-).
