Booth Sprint


In general, everything related to booths (and promo). Feel free to suggest things you'd like to do as well.

  • flyers: there have been some cool "get involved" flyers on the promo list lately, however, what's missing is the kind of flyer that informs about KDE, about pim, about edu, etc.
  • posters and other booth artwork: how should KDE booths look like?
  • booth box: what do we have, what do we need, does the booth box fulfill its purpose, what else can be improved, ...
  • KDE showcase: an installation medium which is dedicated to showcase KDE (this already started at openSUSE conference)
  • documentation: make life easier by providing to-do lists and/or guidelines for booth setup, booth management, questions you have to answer, ...

Marketing sprint


Over the course of 3-5 days, a get-together of marketing people could come up with content and graphics for both the booklet and (and probably design some posters and other promo material), while also discussing and preparing the KDE 4.4 release announcement and feature guide. We might even have a shot at doing some other work. And of course - drink beer!

So we propose to do that meeting. Get a bunch of people together for hard work. The goal is both planning and coordinating but also explicitly to Get Things Done (TM). Specifically to generate content for the release, booklet and The 4.4 release deserves it.
