Great work. Thanks for your effort.

For sure. I would like to add that the language in which the talk
was held should be noted. For instance you mention my talk
"Debian-Med - Freie Software im Gesundheitswesen"
which was held in German and is of no greater interest because it
is overriden by the both talks at LinuxDays Luxembourg - which
are in English and thus not only more up to date but also more
sense for non German speakers. Unfortunately ther no link to the
source which is also available at
(Last but not least I moved the URL of the Magdeburg talk and thus
your page contains a bad link. I'd suggest to remove this talk from
your page or just find the new location at the URL mentioned above.)
How to fix that?
I think we need either
at least two extra fields: "Language" and "URL of further information
about the talk" (where other formats, translations and whatever can be
provided as I do it on the URL above)
a general repository which is flexible enough and accessible by DDs
which would make such private talk collections unnecessary.

Just see the URL above and feel free to ask in private if something
Kind regards and thanks for your work again
