I would actually not have thought this a given.  Could you provide some
statistics, regarding how many visa applications were denied (raw numbers /
percentage of total visa applications), as well as information about any
patterns you're aware of in the denied applications?  E.g., people applying
too late, countries of origin, relatives in the US, prior convictions for
drug running in Patagonia?

This information would be useful to the Portland team for preparing our plan
of attack for visa handling, and it may also be interesting to the DebConf
committee in their bid evaluation.
