The rise of the Clan MacDebian

I've asked the weavers to start doing their job today, so with luck the tailors will still have time to make kilts ready to wear for DebConf10.

If you've been wondering if you'd like some Debian Tartan, now's your chance. We've ordered a little over 20 yards more than we need, which will be enough to make about 3 extra kilts and a few ties (depending on exact details), so order early to avoid disappointment.

Of course, kilts are not the only thing one can make out of tartan. The tailors make other things, but there's nothing stopping you from buying some cloth by the yard and being inventive (it costs about £25.00 GBP per yard). We'll also be making ties, so if you're interested in one of those, please add yourself to the relevant table on the wiki, and I'll get in touch with prices etc.

Full details of this silliness are available on the wiki page -- send any questions to phil at hands dot com
