<shrug> It's something that varies a lot with the culture of the
conference. For this particular conference, after sitting at the front
desk every day of DC14, and watching the traffic patterns of session
attendance, if I were setting a schedule, I would put hacking time in
the morning, and scheduled sessions in the afternoon. Totally not my
call though, and I won't mention it again. :)
Whatever the schedule, make sure you repeat any important information
from verbal announcements on the debconf-discuss or debconf-announce
