- For the Debian configuration management system, see "debconf" (a package which is included in all of their distributions).
DebConf is the yearly conference where Debian developers meet to discuss issues around the further development of the system.
Besides the formal conference with scheduled workshops and talks, Debian developers have always also taken this opportunity to hack on the Debian system in a more informal setting. This has been institutionalised by introducing the DebCamp in the Oslo DebConf in 2003: a room was set aside and computing infrastructure provided.
