Debian Tartan Kilts expected to be ready on Friday
... which is a nice surprise, since when I phoned the weavers up last
week, they said something like "You want the kilts by WHEN?!?" (and that
despite me specifying the target date as the first thing I said to them in
January -- good job I lied, and told them I wanted them by 1st June, eh?)
Seems that was all due to an internal communications failure, and
they've pulled all the stops out to get the order done by the end of
the week, so no harm done.
In related news, it seems that there's a few yards more cloth
than was expected (due to it shrinking somewhat less between weaving
and finishing than expected). That being the case, it's possible
that we'll be able to get one more kilt made, so if you're reading
this thinking "Damn, I wish I'd signed up for one of them" feel free to
get in touch
Alternatively, if the ties we've had made prove popular, I'll use
the spare cloth for making more of them.
So, if you do fancy a kilt, if you can get your measurements to me pretty
much immediately, it's just possible that the tailors will be able to
make a kilt for you before the end of DebConf.
Finally, if people are interested, but not desperate about the timing, there is
a table on the wiki
to which you could add yourself so that a critical mass for
a second order can be accumulated.
