Well, learning from past errors, it should be a great source ;-)

AFAICT, this has been pushed towards one side and the other over the
years. I believe that DebianDay has *evolved* to become something
related but separated from DebConf. Some time ago we did encourage DDs
to go to the DebianDay lectures, to be around for other interested
people to interact with.

But yes, this was mostly nitpicking :) I agree that we should probably
change this to state either Saturday 7th as arrival day / DebianDay,
or DebConf day 1 to be on Monday (shortening by one day the actual
workable week). I'm inclined to the first option.
