Well, I think the sub-projects "corner" was quite narrow. If Adamantix
would have arrived, too, it would have become nearly impossible to take
visitors there and show them the project and answer them questions.

I can understand you point and would like to add an other one: Who will
organize that booth?

Could you be more verbose please? Any other hints beside the "move
merchandising somewhere else" point (of which I think more positive than
in my last mail about that)?

I'm not sure, if KDE is an good example, since I think, they used  big
part (one half?) of their booth looked to me like their private hacking
area. I didn't saw visitors there only their own people on the first
days (but I didn't visited their booth very often).

Yours sincerely,
