Some things - like creating an enhanced view of the schedule or
rendering it in other formats - may well be useful during the summer
because that is when everybody will look at it and give feedback.  Just
make sure there is a parallel instance that is stable.

Other things, like the registration form, should probably not be
changing during that time before the event.

Maybe some of the DebConf team could discuss this with people around the
GSoC session on Tuesday
