Even if sarge isn't released, post-sarge stuff is the only thing we can
expect to be working on by then. So yes, I think we should do this, and
I'm sure from the brainstorming at the Oldenburg meeting about what
people want to change post-sarge that we'll have a *lot* of things to
work on.

I've set up a wiki page for this. Please add your name, some things
you might want to work on during the helsinki, and amount of time.

I think it would be good to have multiple presenters unless there's some
big thing that someone wants to present in-depth. I'm not sure how we
could make it a workshop (90 mins), but if there's room for more than
one presenter in a 45 minute talk, I'd be happy to present 15 minutes
about either d-i basic design/history, or preseeding, or post-sarge plans.
