Hi all, I promise it is the last time I spam you with this!

This is just a reminder that the Debian BSP is happening this weekend,
and that if you plan to attend, please register yourself in the
wikipage (http://wiki.debian.org/BSP/2012/09/ie/Dublin). You might be
refused entrance by Google security if I don't have your name the day

We will be starting at 11:00, in the Google building at Upper Grand Canal st.

If you're completely new to bug fixing in Debian, you might want to
read these to get an idea:


Finally, some people have asked me about the environment necessary for
this. You don't need to be running debian, but you will need an
installation of Debian unstable in a chroot or a virtual machine
(http://wiki.debian.org/Debootstrap explains how to install in a
chroot). A pbuilder/cowbuilder for testing and unstable would be very
useful too. Contact me if you need help setting this up.

See you on Saturday!

Everybody is invited, even newcomers! I will try to prepare some
introductory talks for people who has never done this before, and the
whole point of getting together is to help each other!

There is no need to be a programmer to help, there are plenty of tasks
for everyone! See

We'll get a nice conference room in the ground floor with good Wi-Fi
access. Probably there will be free snacks, and I'll try to arrange
some food.


Please add yourself to the list in the wiki page

list of people attending the event.
