This is all depending on numbers so take it all with a grain of salt.
Basically when I ran this with 7 people we had wired/wireless internet.
I didn't want to flood my one access point or deal with getting people's
wireless working. Everyone needs to be able to get on the same subnet
though so share a gobby editing session.
The net connection needs to be able to handle everyone pulling packages
and such, but it's not a ton of total MB worth of stuff.
So then there's power for everyone with their laptops. Basically when I
did it I shot down the laptop-less.
We went on for nearly 8 hours with a lunch break and such. The trouble
is that it takes a while for everyone to get their GPG keys going so
maybe the best thing to do is split it into two events. One a giant
keysigning party and then the packaging part where you put those keys to
Jorge has been talking of trying to make it a joint event with the Ohio
Loco so it sounds like there's potential for this to be a much larger
event than my 7 person thing. I'm all for limiting/setting up some kind
of sign up though to keep it to those truly interested and to prevent
slowing things down too much with too many people.
