I think this email is bound up in moderation, but I also think it's time 
critical, so I am lazily choosing to forward it rather than figure out 
how to get it out of moderation.

Right, here's a request, then.

We really need someone to look after the video gear in the Wine devroom.
Starting this year, we really want to record *everything*. Including
your devroom. That requires at least one, but preferably two or more,
volunteers to man the video gear.

It's not difficult. I've already sent out a few mails with details to
all our other volunteers; please see
<https://lists.fosdem.org/pipermail/video/2014-January/000078.html> and
<https://lists.fosdem.org/pipermail/video/2014-January/000163.html>. If
you're going to be in the Wine devroom most of the day anyway, you would
be a perfect candidate -- even if you have no prior A/V experience:
there will be a training session, there will be documentation on how
everything works, and we'll be there to help you should things go wrong.

If you don't have the time to put in a whole day, but can do half a day
or even just a few talks, that's also helpful; if there's more than one
of you doing so, you'll probably manage a full day.

Note that if there is no video volunteer at all this year, this will be
taken into account when we need to decide whether Wine will be able to
get a devroom next year.


This end should point toward the ground if you want to go to space.

If it starts pointing toward space you are having a bad problem and you
will not go to space today.
