nchip, Ed Bartosh, P2. We are likely to have quite a few more for a
european debconf.

I think we should. Although we have had a talk at debconf 5 and a BOF
(which was more like a talk due to the venue) at debconf 6. But it
remains an important issue covering various things that affect many
developers, and with useful developments so we need to keep people
informed. We will have to make a good case for having another talk,
but I think we can make that. 

Are you volunteering to do the speaking, or would you prefer someone
else to do that? (I don't mind being chief figurehead :-)

That would be marvellous.

It is (realistic) if we keep up the activity rate of the last few weeks.

That is a tricky question. Essentially a roundup of current activity.
I want to press the 'changes needed in debian' aspect, as well as
covering/showing what we've got so far.
