Osmocom Village at CCC Camp 2019

I am noting possible duplication in effort preparing the camp as well as
digital infrastructure.  Apparently bibor and lynxis aim to manage wiki etc on
code.fe80.eu and the event-orga ML, and Osmocom to be part of the Singularity
City. In contrast, this Osmocom Village mail seems to suggest a separate
village and wiki+ML. I also at some point noted separate efforts made by
different people for setting up a large Osmocom tent, IIUC.

I'm not sure how to consolidate, but I get the strong feeling that bibor,
lynxis and laforge should talk about the camp preparations to avoid "aneinander
vorbeireden", confusion and redundant efforts ... ?
