Hello everyone,

with this e-mail, I would like to send out some more details for the upcoming LibreOffice Hackfest, which takes place from September 2nd to 4th in Munich.

1. Wiki page and emergency contact

For up-to-date information, please keep an eye on the official wiki page at - best is to print that page out shortly before you travel to Munich.

In case of an emergency, my mobile number is in the signature of this e-mail and on the wiki page, so you can reach me.

2. Venues and sleeping

I just added information on the two venues at the wiki page, and information for car drivers.

It is possible to sleep at Café Netzwerk, although we try to organize couchsurfing instead. If you want to sleep at Café Netzwerk, please ping me in advance, and do *not* just add your name to the list. I just managed to get everyone to couchsurfing, then a few new names with sleeping at Café Netzwerk popped up without pinging me, which makes the whole process a bit complicated. ;-)

For those who plan to sleep at Café Netzwerk: You need a sleeping bag and a mattress, because we have to sleep on the plain floor, there are no beds. Be aware that Café Netzwerk has no showers, just normal restrooms. The LiMux office has showers we could use, however.

3. Couchsurfing

A call especially to our friends from Munich: If you want to give some friendly hackers a sleeping place, please let me know directly, so we can coordinate. Be assured that all participants are quite nice and behave friendly. ;-)

4. Add your e-mail address

On the participants list in the wiki, some mail addresses are missing. I would like to ask everyone to add your address, so we can reach you directly.

5. Food and beverages

The LiMux project team will try to organize breakfast for Saturday and Sunday. In case you do not want to participate, please let me know in advance, so we can buy accordingly. Otherwise, feel free to skip breakfast at the hotel, and eat together with us. ;-)

Italo Vignoli will cook pasta for lunch on Saturday, more details are in the wiki. In case you do not want to join, please let me know as well, so we know the amount of pasta to make.

On Friday evening, we will go out for dinner. Saturday's dinner and Sunday's lunch will be determined on the fly, based on what we are hungry for. ;-) Please note that participants have to pay for food on their own, it is *not* paid for by the organizers.

6. Agenda and timetable

As the Hackfest is some sort of unconference, there is no fixed agenda with items to be worked on. In the wiki, we have compiled a list of topics and issues to work on, the rest will be decided on the fly and ad hoc at the venue. This sounds rather chaotic, but usually works out quite well. ;-) We have, however, compiled a little timetable in the wiki.

So, now I hope this e-mail didn't cause more confusion than it helped, and I look forward to meeting all of you in Munich! Have a look at your inbox the next days and on the wiki page, in case we some details change.

Happy hacking!
