Hehe. Well, there was a slight panic on #debian.de because of the
announcement of the second BSP on that weekend. I was just the one who
formed a mail out of that panic and tried to not letting it escalate.

Yeah, I would have expected a wiki page for coordination anyway, even
for a single BSP. IIRC all BSPs I've attended so far had a wiki page
for coordinating and collecting the BSP's result. My hope was that by
acting quickly we don't end up having two such pages.
