Hmmm... You have sort of a point - But I'm voiding it for a single
reason: There is no limit on the registration point (other than the
end of Debconf itself, of course). We accept people after the
confirmation period, only we don't pay for their stay.
...But you are right, a prominent notice should have appeared to
people in Patricio's case :( Still, the majority (41 out of 78) that
registered at or after March 31 did specify their confirmation.
