Thanks everyone for submitting the bid for DebConf in India.
If we are thinking of IIT Mumbai as a venue for DebConf 20, then we need to
make sure that IIT Mumbai gives us solid WiFi and mobile carrier signals in
the campus. During the Mini-DebConf there, we had big issues with internet
connectivity. This is something which we can easily fix with help of
We have good volunteer numbers in Pune and Mumbai combined, for on the
ground support before the event (if it does happen). Also, Mumbai has many
hotels to accommodate a large contingent and the IIT campus is large enough
to accommodate multiple parallel tracks. Plus, we have many good
sightseeing places nearby the city.
Adding Mumbai LUG to CC.

Myself S. Baskar, an active member from ILUG-Chennai since 2005 who is more
passionate about Linux/FOSS. A Linux/FOSS user since 1997.
I came to know that, few users in this group are interested in creating a
custom spin using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I have been creating custom spins
based on various Linux distro for educational purpose.
I hope I can share this experience with ILUG-BOM members if they are
A few days after the release of Ubuntu 18.04, I have created a spin based
on LUbuntu 18.04 for Libraries. More information can be found in the below
link. I can provide a copy of the spin for the group for experimentation.
