as LinuxTag comes closer and finding out that our Orga this year is not much 
better than for other projects :-) I would like everyone who will be there 
and available for working at the KDE booth to drop me a mail with

- exact dates when in Karlsruhe
- exact hours when you want to do any service in the booth
- which project you would like to show:

a) KDE Desktop
b) KOffice 
c) KDevelop
d) PIM

(we have 4 machines presumably, so only 4 major topics are possible on the 
main machines)

Additional stuff like Multimedia, PIM or any other special purpose 
applications like kdeedu programs or e.g. kile are possible on either 

I'm planning to have two machines run SuSE 8.2 and two other machines run 
Debian. If you want Free/Open/Net BSD show up on wednesday evening and bring 
your CD's :-) and we'll install that on one of the machines (and you will be 
held reliable if you leave with the root password before sunday, be assured 

If anyone has a chance to find out a local place where we could spend a KDE 
social event evening feel free to make proposals in case.... uhm, guess most 
people know about last year's story :-))

Booth staff required:

4 people on the demo points
1 person at the Theke (reception)
1 person bringing people around and keeping an overview :-)

Shifts should be no longer than 3 to 4 hours at once so you can go to talks 
and walk around or sit in the sun in the park outside (or go and buy water 
bottles and brezeln). That means we need about 10 to 15 different people 
during the show. Most difficult will be thursday but will also be the day 
with the lowest traffic, so we'll just rotate around the 4 people at the demo 
points if necessary :-)

I'm currently taking care of the equipment and hopefully will have 
confirmations by next week if we get the stuff we need. Eva and Matze will 
bring last year's KDE e.V. equipment.

If someone can bring up a beer sponsor, feel free to take care of that issue 
as well.


PS: KDE T-shirts are still available. Mail Eva at kde.org for one if you don't 
want to wear a kid's toddler during LT. I'll come in shorts if the weather 
stays that way it is right now or cut off the legs of my suit trousers.

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
