My understanding is that there will be places to sleep, internet, and
possibly food for any groups that want to arrive before the conference
for hacking.

I agree about the BOFs because I think that pulling more developers into
d-i will be even more important after sarge is released. I also think it
will be important to educate the general debian developership about the
installer. For example right now it seems we have a lot of DDs who don't
even know if d-i supports lvm. (See Planet Debian.) Maybe a general
presenttion about d-i would be good, if someone wants to do one.

However I don't think that more BOFs and talks will neccessarily make for
a more productive development session. And I do think we will have some
big projects we'd like to work on, though I can't predict exactly which
