DebConf: Debian 10th Birthday Party Coordination Page

Debian Hits Double Digits on August 16th 2003!

  • Anand Kumria had the cool idea of creating some 10th birthday merchandise. At the moment he's planning to do some mugs and some bags, but it'll depend on what sort of demand there is. If you're interested, for more info.
  • Debian gear can also be bought at - thanks to Henrion Benjamin for pointing that one out to me!
  • Rob 'robster' Bradford has created an IRC channel called '#debian-party' on OFTC. Go there to join the fun!
  • Don't forget to take a camera if you're attending a party, once this is all over I'd like to stick up a photo gallery.
Happy Birthday Debian!
