Hi *,

i had a chat with sascha and the outcome is that we like to have a
mini ganeticon manly to prepare a full size GanetiCon in 2018.

First of all a big Sorry from my side i was trying to set a ganeticon
up in 2017 but i did not find the time to do so, mainly because the
lag of a mising place in Berlin.

To make things easy to plan for me i like to invite all how are able
to manage a trip to Leipzig (Germany) in the beginning o December to
stop by (i just try to get a room in our Office)

i hope for some feedback ;-)

Cheers,
Ansgar

Hi,

that's a great idea and I will definitely try to attend. Hopefully we will have more luck finding a suiting location next year.

Hi Ansgar, great initiative ! Maybe we could set up a poll to pick a
date, based on your availabilities ? I'm unfortunately away traveling
until the 12th of December :(

Depending on the number of people, maybe Copenhagen in the spring
could be a possibility ? There are some possibilities here.

I'll be happy to participate. I'm travelling around Christmas time so that's obviously a no-go (which I assume is the same for most folks as it's holiday time).

Also I will most likely attend FOSDEM this year (like every year). If all else fails we could always have a get-together there and even find a spare room for us most likely.

Hi Ansgar,

thanks for taking the initiative! I like to attend in December and to share
my hopefully interesting 2¢, which are:

* ganeti on SLES
* an OS-Interface based on libguestfs
* a trip to LXC and back to KVM
* using sharedfile (NFS) for 5 years now, but planning to migrate to DRBD
* using blockdev (FC)
* partiality finished solutions/ideas like:
- hook for online disk grow
- very simple web console based on novnc integrated inside the ganeti-
cluster (bound to the master-node)

Besides exchanging experiences and ideas, this meetings are a good chance to
increase the awareness of ganeti.

Thanks, Sascha.

Hi *,

good news everyone, there is some progress!

So far 14 attendees showed their interest and 11 confirmed their coming.
If you want to attend and have not mailed me yet, please see my first
mail on this topic. Thanks.

**The other good news:**
If you come by, feel free to mail me your preferred t-shirt size &
gender cut (male/female/unisex) upfront (in the next few days) so we
can prepare a little surprise right in time -- if you know what I mean
;)

Best,
Bernd and Ansgar

I'm also considering attending. I have to check my schedule etc
tomorrow, so I'll post a follow-up.

I could do a small presentation on the status of Ganeti in Debian and
how we are using Ganeti at Skroutz, although not much has changed since
the last GanetiCon I attended :)

Regards,
Apollon

Sounds great. I would pre-schedule you half an hour, if you would like to extent notice me.

I would be interested in the status of ganeti in debian, and in your use-case too. I don't know if any of the attendees attend the last miniCon, so a repeat/refresh would not harm at all.

Hello Ansgar,

I would like to confirm that I'm able to participate in miniGentiCon.
-- and depending on the amount of pizza and the taylor's mood I'm a L/XL
"male", I'm not offended by XL ;)

Regards,
Benjamin

Argh, initially wrote I could, but migration planned at work that means I
can't make it :(

Already booked the trip, as well. As I said elsewhere, I'll prepare a
small presentation on the status of Ganeti in Debian and things I would
like to see upstreamed.

Looking forward to it :)

Hey all! 

We're getting close to the date, just two more days. 
Do we have a list of actual planned talks? A time slot for unconference time/discussion for the future of Ganeti?
I'll be leaving for Leipzig tomorrow and arrive in the late afternoon/early evening, I'm looking forward to meeting you all on Friday!

Just as a confirmation for everybody who might have missed it:

Location is:

Spreadshirt (sprd.net AG) 
Gießerstraße 27 
04229 Leipzig 
Germany 

https://www.google.de/maps/place/Spreadshirt/@51.3262883,12.3260783,17z 

And we will start at 10am. Is this still correct Ansgar?

Cheers,
Morg.

My train got cancelled due to "technical damage", whatever that means.
I'll arrive in ~ 20 minutes at the central station, and will arrive at
the location around 10:15.

See you,
Georg
