[Gimp-developer] Chaos Communication Camp 2015: Information about the Gimp-tent and more

Hi all.

As many of you know GIMP will be attending the Chaos Communication Camp
2015 near Berlin, Germany.


You're welcome to join us among the crowd. We will be part of the "Chaos
West" village pretty much in the center of the camp area. Have a look
around for the wilber flag.


If you don't have a ticket yet you unfortunately need a bit of luck to
get one, since the available tickets already have been sold. However,
there will be a sale of tickets that have not been paid in time. The
sale will be announced 24h in advance at


(there are also tons of useful information in this blog as well as in
the Wiki).

I have attached another informatino mail from the camp organization

Looking forward meeting you at the camp!

Dear Villages,

we hope you are as excited about camp as we are. And it's coming close now!
We've compiled some relevant information for you:

First Come First Serve
…is valid only for the ticket shop, on the camp itself we are living together
in friendship and harmony and share all our valuable resources for a lovely
experience. If you place your tents with large gaps you may have to move them
again or accept tents in between. If all the power sockets are gone you may
have to unplug some of your fancy equipment for your neighbours and so on. And
always, be excellent to each other!

We've tried to find a suitable place for all the big villages that registered
in the wiki with a focus on their special demands and the rented tents. In the
end the actual situation on site will be the main factor, as there are many
obstacles on site. Don't forget that space is limited in the physical world.

Your placement
You might have found this map already: http://campmap.mazdermind.de/ (Be aware
that people are contributing their own stuff to that map already. If you do so
do it at your own risk, changes made there may be ignored on site if need
The assigned area is only a rough spot, not any kind of private area only used
by you and your village. It all depends on how much people you guys are
actually (and really!) going to be and what fancy equipment is beeing brought
to the camp. We have tried to keep spare spaces in all areas for dynamic
growth and shrinking and for all those small, unplaced villages and people
without any village.
Keep in mind, that your tents should be anchored with stakes shorter than
30cm/11.5 inches. Also digging deeper than 30cm / 11.5 inches is not allowed
due to safety reasons.

Village isn't placed yet?
We don't want to dictate all the space and placements, so we only helped the
big villages in finding a place - and especially those villages with a rented
tent (that isn't able to move). If your village isn't placed yet, you have
free choice from the spots left. We left some space everywhere on the whole

Cars on the campground
As a rule of thumb: we don't like cars on the camp site. Cars will be
permitted during daytime for buildup or resupply, but the access will be
restricted by the entrance crew.
Caravans (or other cars used for sleeping) will be allowed on the designated
caravan area or, if actually used for housing children, on the caravan area
near the family camp ground.
Cars on other areas, for example in your village, are ONLY allowed if they are
an integral part of the village setup or design.
For example: A camper packed full with a mobile radio station with roof
integrated antennas is allowed, or your mobile hacker/makerspace in that old
firetruck of yours. Any car that is used only for storing stuff, cooking on
that small integrated kitchen or beeing the anchor for your tent or flag pole
shoud definitely park outside.
If your car is a part of your village please keep in mind that you should
arrive during buildup time and leave only after the end of the camp.

Power and Water
Please don't forget that we are still camping on a field. Yes, we are hackers
and therefore there will be power (how can one be without?). But all that
power is produced on site. Help us and reduce our ecological footprint (and
costs). Don't let it stop you from bringing cool stuff, but please make it
power efficient. Similar with water, every liter of water that stays unused
will reduce the amount of waste water we have to buffer, process, dispose and
pay for. Our infrastructure is limited, so check the needs of all those people
around you for a pleasant camp experience. (If you blow one of the big fuses
or even bring down a generator your neighbours will probably notice it.) As
for now at least one hackerspace is providing rental power equipment

We will provide an option for buying crates full of water, Mate or beer
[https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/Static:BOC/Central_Ordering]. You can
buy single crates on site or, if you or your village is interested in buying
more than 10 crates, please contact boc lists ccc de for large orders. There
are many stores[https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/POIs] in Zehdenick, and
we do have bars[https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/Static:BOC#Bars] and
different varieties of food on site.
Btw, as it apparently wasn't clear for everyone: There is no problem if your
village is cooking for yourself, like one usually does in a hackerspace:
Everyone gives a bit, everyone gets a bit. Please keep in mind that you should
not cook for the purpose of generating money. Do not sell any stuff to
refinance anything. So please make sure that every moneyflow in your village
is a donation for whatever consumed, and not a way to pay your camp tickets or
tent rental (amongst other things) ...

Workshops are sessions, and sessions can be many more things. Please use the
wiki [https://events.ccc.de/camp/2015/wiki/Static:Self-organized_Sessions] to
publish whenever your village plans to do any kind of session.

At the moment no tickets are available any more. Please keep an eye on
https://events.ccc.de/ to get to know when there will be a last batch. Please
tell your village-members who haven't ordered a ticket so far to do so, too.

Be excellent to each other!

lacce from your village team
