I'll got ACK from Les Magnas that they are fully free before April.
Well from my end i was going through the Kde-dev-guide, and i offered a few suggestions to Valorie would love to share here as well,
ln the Dev guide it states KDE from developers viewpoint, we could add the some thing like KDE from a new contributor point of view or some other nice term, and in this we could give information about:

Ι sent a reminder around a week ago to the people I've been in talks with here in Athens to see if they can provide the place after all but I haven't received any answer yet, other than the acknowledgement that they are indeed late to respond.
Do we have any news about that sprint and when/where it'll happen?

hm... Not sure if this is part of this task, but the new template says
@aacid: right, for a lot a big shared room is fine and for most a two persons room is fine. But I think we also need the possibility for people to have a single room one or two.

Something else that might be very useful in this regard, would be a way to flag, tag, sort, ... tickets by programming language or other skills one would need to accomplish a task.

Done, thanks for your work @acrouthamel!
Woohoo! Awesome work, Andrew. Keep an eye on http://pointieststick.wordpress.com/ tomorrow. :-)
I'm going to pull the automated NEEDSINFO handling from here, since this task is specific to new bug reporter experience. I'll work with Harald or whoever else would like to help. For now, I have a manual set of searches that seem to work well enough. I have some other automation ideas as well, so I'll just track that all in a separate task.
We had a similar discussion in Akademy! Since string tags can't be added, we have to create either a group or a project.
Then, we may use the phabricator API to serve the junior jobs wherever needed. And, why not, create sth similar to the findyourway of plasmobile for KDE junior jobs in general.
Maybe we could add a "Junior Job" tag to phabricator? At the moment junior jobs are spread all over phabricator and hard to find. With a global "Junior Job" tag we could collect all these jobs in one place and new contributors could search threw them to find something that fits them.

@sitter - I just wanted to loop you in here since you had offered to script the NEEDSINFO closure bot.

AFAIK two people in two beds in a room is the default that KDE eV sponsored solution since basically halves the price for hotels in rooms, sharing more then 2 people in a room gets annoying and usually is avoided and only one person per room is too expensive and only granted in some cases, but please confirm with the board what i'm saying is true.

Indeed it was. You might like what the Plasma Mobile project came up with: https://www.plasma-mobile.org/findyourway/

What made you step and and decide to contribute to KDE?
I've always wanted to contribute to something. I was very happy with what is going on in KDE lately (Plasma in particular but also the more common apps) and Nate's blog made it seem very approachable, even for someone new to KDE/Qt/C++.
@ngraham are you suggesting to form a group for mentors on Phabricator? If yes, I have some suggestions on that, but we should probably continue this discussion on T8713. Let me know and I'll post my comments there.
Oh, maybe I'm stating the obvious, but the whole patch submission process is absolutely bearable. Nothing fancy. The problem lies more in the way it is explained. Once you have Neon and arc running, it's a breeze.
Thank you so much for taking the time to respond here @acrouthamel . Hopefully as we gather more responses we will be able distinguish some common themes among newcomers' feedback.
A good next step might be creating a formal Phabricator group for this, to which people could add themselves. Then for example we could document that new contributors should add the group as a reviewer for their first patches, which could help make sure that those critical first patches don't get lost and always have someone available who can help. Thoughts?

the only suggestion where people aren't sharing rooms is the french one then :)
The Linux Hotel in Essen-Host (https://www.linuxhotel.de, German only) is are really nice location. I was there once some years ago and forgotten about it :D I ask them today by phone, but they can only host at maximum 25 persons. And this only if several share a two bed room. They proposed to asl "Unperfekt Haus" in Essen Cetrum (https://www.unperfekthaus.de, German only).
