I’d suggest s/virtual/on-line/ because it’s very real.  :-)

Also, Oct. 20 is a short deadline no?

BTW, Nov. 23 will be the 8th anniversary:

We should add a note (but maybe just before the event) of who to talk to
and how during the event to report abuse: specific IRC or BBB nicknames,
etc.

The rest looks *great* to me!

Also, make sure to adjust the date header before pushing.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Hi Ludo,

Thank you for the review.  Your comments are in the v2 patch.

The deadline is November 6th.

Is it really a coincidence? ;-)

The v2 patch does not tweak this part.  I suggest to word something
for the next announcement when releasing the schedule.  We could
provide details on how to participate and what does it mean, etc.

Cheers,
simon

Maybe fix the slug too, and the link as a consequence.

Slug*?  And which link?
(about the 8th anniversary?)


Cheers,

In the header of the blog post. That's what produces the URL. And so, the link to the blog post in the header.

Sorry.  I got it.  See v4.

Julien, Zimoun,

Thank you both!

> first online Guix Day
> will be held online.

Right.  ‘Entirely online’ if for emphasis?

(Missing double-space BTW.)

> whether we would like to have your talk be part of the Guix Day.

‘whether your talk will be part of the Guix Day’, unless this is 
deliberately hedged?  Then it sounds a little clumsy, but I guess 
that's OK.

> what you feel important

‘what you feel is important’

> birds of a feather (BoF) sessions

I know this is well-known conference-goer slang, but I had to look 
it up.  Even knowing what it stands for isn't enough to know what 
it means.  Is there a short synonym?

> lightning round talks

= lightning talks?

> a peertube instance, a nextcloud instance

‘PeerTube’; ‘Nextcloud’.

Now you're just trolling my neuroses.  ;[-])

Old printer's slang appropriated for the digital age: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slug_(typesetting).

Kind regards,

Hi Tobias,

Thank you for the review.  Will be incorporated in v4.

There is this: "BoFs topic (smaller group who want to talk about
specific topics)." under "talk proposals".  Maybe the wrong place.
WDYT?

Oh!  You did my day. :-)  Thank you.

+title: Announcing the first virtual Guix Day Conference
+date: 2020-10-16 00:00
+author: Guix Hackers
+slug: virtual-guix-days-announce-1
+tags: Conference
+---
+
+The Guix hackers are very happy to announce the first virtual Guix Day
+Conference on **Sunday November, 22nd**.  This conference is open to everyone
+and will be held online. Want to speak?  Submit your proposal!
+
+Important dates:
+
+1. **November 6th**: Deadline for talks proposal.
+1. **November 14th**: Deadline for releasing your pre-recorded talks.
+1. **November 16th**: Release of the schedule.
+1. **November 22nd**: Conference day!
+
+The layout of the day is:
+
+ - pre-recorded talks with live question and answer sessions
+ - birds of a feather (BoF) sessions
+ - lightning round talks, if possible
+ - hack together
+
+*There will be no presentation on the 22nd!* And **no registration fee**.
+
+##### Until November 6th: talks proposal
+
+Propose your talks by sending them to `guix-devel@gnu.org`.  Feel free to drop
+in `#guix` on irc.freenode.net to discuss what you would like to talk about
+before submitting. :)
+
+Please describe with 10 lines or more what your proposal is about.  Even if it
+is a BoFs topic (smaller group who want to talk about specific topics).
+
+Once you have sent your proposal, you will be notified in the coming days
+whether we would like to have your talk be part of the Guix Day.
+
+Good topics include your own experience with Guix and what you feel important
+to share with your other fellows, for example a non-exhaustive topic list is:
+installer, Maven build system, Data Service, GNU Hurd and cross-compilation,
+Cuirass and continuous integration, authentication, secret services, website
+translation, translation infrastructure,…  It is a single day so we won't be
+able to cover all. ;-)
+
+
+##### November 9th-14th: prepare your talk
+
+The aim of the pre-recorded talk is to demonstrate new features, what you are
+hacking on, introduce the subject for easing the live question and answer
+sessions or BoFs.  These pre-recorded talks should be **15-45 minutes
+long**.  Feel free to ask if you need help with the recording.
+
+You are free to choose whichever storage platform you want (e.g., your own
+website, a peertube instance, a nextcloud instance, etc.), but we will need to
+have access to the original file so we can publish it later on
+[audio-video.gnu.org](https://audio-video.gnu.org).  Your video must be
+released under a license that at least allows anyone to copy and share it, for
+any purpose.
+
+You will have to release the video publicly before November 14th, so everyone
+has a chance to see it before the conference.  If you are not able to do so
+(for instance your server cannot handle a huge load), you can alternatively
+send us a private link to the video and we will upload it on
+[audio-video.gnu.org](https://audio-video.gnu.org).  If you decide to do so,
+you will need to have the video ready by November 12th.
+
+
+##### November 16th-22nd: watch the talks
+
+Be sure to watch the pre-recorded talks before the conference.  There will be
+no presentation on the 22nd.
+
+
+##### November 22nd: participate
+
+Coming soon!  Stay tuned.
+
+
+#### Code of Conduct
+
+This online conference is an official Guix communication channel.  Therefore,
+the [Code of Conduct](http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/tree/CODE-OF-CONDUCT)
+applies.  Please be sure to read it beforehand!
