It will get better: At least for debconf-time you will have an
@debconf.org alias. :)
Well, it was used to have an easy way to see "is DD, is not DD", but
with the keyids we ask for its even easier.

Well, it needs *something* to work with. If all proposals and accounts
are for "Anon Ymous" then that one person would have much to talk, and
would get a lot of sponsorship. :)

Comas seems to be a bit stupid here. It lets you enter a day *and* an
hour where talk submitting ends but then only looks at the day to
compare if you are still allowed to submit. So for the database it now
ends on 7. December, so that people can submit until 6. December,
23:59:59 *UTC*
