I'm surprised to hear that attendance at DebCamp is that high.  Honestly,
I've always found the DebCamp/DebConf split disappointing, because DebCamp
sounds like something I would enjoy a lot but I find it difficult to justify
taking two weeks off for both and I give priority to DebConf due to the
greater attendance.  I would be very happy if there were some way to make
DebConf itself more DebCamp-y.
