A list of names up to now was posted on the list.

>     * do you need PCs?

Perhaps some people have no laptop, we should find out how many.

>     * do you need Plasma Screens? (how many?)

Can be perhaps useful as projector replacement in a small breakout room.

>     * projectors?

Every conference/meeting room should have one.

>     * internet access?

Would be great: Read mail between sessions, show stuff on project pages,
linuxprinting.org, ...

>     * catering? food? drinks? (coffee, tea, sodas, water, are reasonable
>       easy) food would be difficult for 50 people.

What is the infrastructure in and around Lanier? Are there restaurants
for lunch?

>     * Will participants have rental cars? do they require limo service?

How far away from the city center (and from the airport) is Lanier? Is
there public transport? What infrastructure is available near Lanier.

So one can try out stuff and also quickly print conference materials.

> Please let me know if this meets your requirements.

I think, this is perfect, one could even do two additional days of
hacking session after the event with this equipment. The exact
requirements we will find out by discussion on the list.

Hotel would be only necessary if we are more than 50. Otherwise we would
have much better infrastructure at Lanier.

> Hotels are available, we get corporate rates at the Marriotts.

Great, as we cannot get a room block through OSDL in Atlanta.

> Restaurants are available in the area and, of course, in the hotels.

Will we have lunch in walking distance from Lanier then.
