Debconf's over for another year - people have gone their separate ways, taking their newly-shared sense of purpose (and germs!) back home with them.
Speaking for the organising team, I think we can justifiably be proud of ourselves - we seem to have pulled off a Debconf! Not everything worked perfectly or quite as we expected/wanted, but in the end I don't think we had any major issues. Fundamentally, it seems that all the attendees enjoyed themselves immensely and lots of productive work and socialising happened. That's the important bit!
Thanks to all of you that turned up and helped us to make the conference a success this year, especially the volunteers who dived in to fetch, carry, man the front desk, run the cameras, organise the day trip, etc. And also (of course) to the sponsors who paid for the event - we love you all!
The orga team still have some small bits to finish up before we declare things completely finished, though. We've still got some bits and pieces left in Edinburgh yet, waiting to be returned to their respective owners. And we're going to make a start on the post-conference report shortly. That's a place where conference attendees can help us again - we're looking for short write-ups of your experiences at the conference and a good selection of photos to give an impression of how things went. If you're able/willing to help, please mail the debconf-team list.
Thank you and goodnight.
