The reason I added you to Cc here was to get you at the video sprint
that we're planning, not to get you involved in DebConf video work. I
realize that you're unfamiliar with the old/"current" debconf workflow,
and that you wouldn't be of much use there.
Having said that, while the FOSDEM 2015 workflow isn't mature enough yet
IMO, I do agree the old setup (which is essentially what DebConf has
been using since 2007) is in need of replacement; and there were enough
things that did go well at FOSDEM 2015 for me to want to pick the "good"
parts of it. For that, your experience and presence at any such sprint
would be most welcome.
