I'll come and probably will sleep in the room too. I can give a short
presentation which will explain how our community is build up and how
the ABS works. I already gave that one at my university this April[1]
and who wants can take a look at the stuff from back then, I'd make it a
bit more specific as we have more time and the publicum won't be 15
people that rarely know about something else than using preinstalled
Microsoft products. I guess a talk about mkinitcpio would also be
welcome as my translation of your post Thomas was by far the most read
one in this year and is still often read.

For the clothes: I don't own a shirt with our logo by now, as I don't
want to design one(very bad skill of mine) is it okay if I order the
one[2] Sven introduced with his TU-Application? As I don't want to
order two I'd ran around in an i3-shirt the other day. If there are no
objections till Monday I'll do the order ;)

I currently hardly fight with my hardware so I can not say yet if I can
bring something else than laptop, cables and sockets with me, I'll give
a clear list at last 7 days before the fun. However I'll try to get
enough space at my laptop so I can also bring a local mirror for
[extra] next to my usual [core] one so we can help people with fast
complete installations and set ups if there again people who need so.
(The main interest ist to fasten the installation at presentation
machines up but *shhh*. ;-))

Well that's everything I can say for now,
