as in previous years we had a Debian booth at the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage it was as well organized as the years before and I enjoyed meeting a lot of great people from the Debian and free software communities as well as CAcert again.
At our booth we presented the awesome work of Debian Installer translators in a BabelBox surrounded by xpenguins which attracted young as well as older passers-by. We got thanks for our work which I want to forward to the whole Debian community. A Debian user told us that he is able to use some PC hardware from the late 1990s that does not work with other desktop OSes anymore.
We fed 3 kg of strategic jelly bear reserves as well as some packs of savoury snacks to our visitors. Alexander Wirt brought some T-Shirts, Stickers and Hoodies that we sold almost completely.
We did some keysigning at the booth to help to get better keys into the Debian keyring and helped a prospective new Debian Developer to get a strong key signed to his FD approval. I also attended the Key signing party organized by Jens Kubieziel.
