Just to say thanks

Hi,

I am amazed how well Debian Stretch is working for me...

I have PCI based SSD ( nvme) and the whole debian 9 installed in less than 10 minutes, nvidia worked out of the box and I was booting and running from it ...
Boot takes couple of seconds if that much and system is stable and running like Jessie, which I have on the traditional spindles as a backup...

Just amazing work that every maintainer and developer puts in this bistro...


Thank you for great work ...

Best

Feedback from the conference dinner restaurant

Folks,

The conference dinner restaurant people wrote in to say (my
translation¹):

  "Altogether we were all very impressed by this evening. Your group
  was so diverse, and in good temper until the end. Everyone was so
  friendly and courteous that it was a pleasure for us to host you.
  There was no damage whatsoever, which isn't usual for a group this
  size."

In short: you guys are awesome.

¹) German original: "Insgesamt sind auch wir alle sehr beeindruckt von diesem
Abend, Ihre "Truppe" war so bunt, gut gelaunt bis in die Abendstunden. Alle
waren so freundlich und höflich, dass es uns allen eine Freude war, sie
bewirten zu dürfen. Es gab überhaupt keine Sachschäden, was bei einer Gruppe
dieser Größe nicht selbstverständlich ist!

slides an git annex

Hi,

I tried uploading my slides using git annex, and even though I followed
the steps in README very closely, they never showep up on
http://annex.debconf.org/debconf-share/debconf15/slides/

Looking at the git repository, it seems other people had the same issue,
so there are slides in the git repo that are not published yet. Is this
just waiting someone with the correct access to do something, or did I
and others missed some step?

What I did, according to the README, was

git annex add $file_or_directory
git commit
git annex copy --auto --to incoming
git annex sync

I am sorry but I don't have the terminal output anymore, but there were no
error messages, and AFAICT it seems to have worked.

$ git remote -v
incoming        ssh://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debconf-share (fetch)
incoming        ssh://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debconf-share (push)

Video subtitling

Hello,

Thanks to the amazing work of the Video team and volunteers, we have
lots of videos, yay!

I'd then like to emphasize about helping with subtitling videos of our
talks:

https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/Videoteam/Subtitles

There are a lot of good reasons for subtitling:

- without it deaf people can only benefit from the slides, not from your
  actual talk.

- some people on the net may not want to spend the time to listen to the
  whole video, but would gladly read the whole text.

- crawlers catch its words, which brings a lot of keywords to the
  corresponding video.

However, subtitling is a very long process, particularly when one isn't
used to the speaker accent, and doesn't know the subject particularly
well.

That's why I'd advise speakers to work on writing the raw transcript
of their own talk, i.e. just the raw text. This is really easy for the
person who spoke, since the two problems above go away, and one can
hope (s)he knows quite well what (s)he wanted to say :) About anybody
else can then easily work on the subtitling itself (splitting the raw
transcript in pieces and syncing on the video), which will be made a lot
less work.

It usually takes me something like a bit less than an hour per 10
minutes of talk to write the raw transcript.

Thank you all!

Hello everyone who was at the conference!

Thank you all.

After arriving back home I found out that the vegan green dinner I left 
earlier for was not Saturday but will be today. On listening to a meditation 
to let go of the conflict that I left earlier than I needed to in order to be 
at the vegan green dinner and thus missing the closing ceremony needlessly I 
fell asleep and woke up somewhat around 1:45 in the night.

I bet that means that I had lots of experiences, impressions and information 
to process!

Now I miss the experience already. I appreciate how I somehow feel connected 
also to all the people I did not talk to, even tough at some time I may have 
intended to do so. Verbal communication is just a tiny fraction of 
communication going on between beings enjoying the human experience.

At the beginning I had difficulty processing all the new impressions and 
experiences to the point I found that I took in more than I was able to 
process in time and almost shut down. But later on I enjoyed the conference 
experience more and more, while being more careful to take times for myself, 
and also thought about the advantage of sleeping at the venue without having 
to care to get back to my sleeping place by public transport and S-trains only 
going every hour in the later evening. On the other hand sleeping outside in a 
luxurious guest room provided some time and space for myself and processing 
what I experienced.

One of the most important take aways from the conference for me is what 
happened several times as I learned to know people I know from mailing lists 
in real life.

There have been several of occurences where I found that face to face the 
interaction between me and the other was much more friendly than on the 
mailing list or in a bug report and I thought: Wow, with this guy who I 
thought is tough and harsh I can have such a friendly conversation face to 
face. It helped me a long way to let go of quite some judgements I kept onto 
and blocked quite some of my energy in. I now understand more deeply what it 
means to assume good intentions. Even if I do not agree with some decisions or 
ways people handle things I now during the DebConf I got the clear sense that 
they do it the way they do it with best intentions.  Thank you.

As a goal I take out of this is to go greater lengths to contribute keeping 
discussions in mailing lists constructive and friendly even when experiencing 
strong differences in oppinions or point of views. As a model for this I will 
use what I found in Plasma/KDE mailing lists so far. I can´t explain why or 
how yet,  but there people somehow manage to keep a constructive tone much 
more consistently than what I experienced in Debian mailing lists.

I am not sure yet whether I attend to Cape Town. Traveling long distances is 
quite a challenge to me personally. But I challenged myself to go to this 
DebConf as well and I am very glad I did.

Thank you,

Thank you to the organization team!

[bcc´d to feedback <at> debconf.org]

Hello organization team, hello network team (NOC),

You did an exceptionally awesome job.

You are awesome.

Thank you.

From registration to keeping times with talks, from day drip to conference 
dinner it was a totally smooth experience for me. I can only imagine the 
amount of effort you put into it, but for me in the role of a participant of 
the conference everything appeared to flow totally effortless to me.

I was also impressed about the network. I think I never saw such a speedy WLAN 
network at any free software conference I have been with. I heard about issues 
of some people, but for me it mostly worked okay. I just used a different WLAN 
at some place aside from the central places as it appeared to work better 
there.

I considered helping at first, but after three weeks of holidays which I 
really could use, I decided to just enjoy the conference as participant. I 
think asking my employer about sponsoring was useful however :).

I really don´t know any aspects where organization could have been better.

About the vegan eating in the youth hostel: I was happy to see the effort of 
the cooking team to care for all the different needs of the participants and 
sometimes even make really nice vegan options that I could get directly from 
the kitchen like the rice and vegetable pan and the banana with dark chocolate 
desert some non vegan eating people would have been interested in as well. I 
missed some usual vegan options at the barbecue such as vegan salad source or 
anything else except green leaves for salad, but there have been potatos and 
corn.

I was still hungry after the vegan conference dinner option. I found the meal 
to be a little small after hiking up this mountain :). However I was impressed 
by the organization to provide a meals for about 400 people in a short time. 
And I bet that location usually does not have many vegan options at all.

Thank you again. I appreciate your work.

Ciao,

Post-DebConf opportunity in Frankfurt: Trevor Paglen photo exhibition on surveillance

Hi,

I only realized now, but "The Octopus" photo exhibition curated by Trevor Paglen (who shot the recent photos of NSA headquarters etc. The photo Jake Appelbaum displayed during his keynote was a joint art project with him) is still going in the city centre of Frankfurt:

http://www.fkv.de/en/content/trevor-paglen-octopus

So if you have some time to kill in Frankfurt before you leave, that might be a good one-off opportunity. The surrounding old city hall and Cathedral are worth checking out as well.

To condense a bit.

Also, I lost a shirt that says "Subpop" on it. Likely in the laundry room.
