Ah, got it. So, in terms of projecting head-counts for the cafeteria,
numbers from those past DebConfs will provide the most accurate
approximation. If, say, 40% of attendees skipped the conference-provided
dinner in those cities, then we can build that same percentage into our
projections with a fair degree of confidence. Sounds good.
