So, now that I send you the data we got, I will add some personal
comments to them:

> Topic:		"Debian Security"

Well, although it is theoretical no problem to ask questions later at
our booth (or before the door), it is practical a problem, since you
might want to go to an other talk, forget your questions or your
question might be intersting for others, too.
Especially since it is quite difficult to catch Joey during LinuxTag ;)

We never announced this talk to be in german.  So I don't think we
should worry about that, until we find a competent volunteer to either
teach Luk fluent german, or to give such a talk in german next year.

The topics aren't related much, I don't think we can avoid such

Looks to me like a quite competent speaker had a small problem, when the
one, who should be his partner in this talk, needed to cancel :(

Impressive, that he is the only one who got a note better than the best
possible :)

If you ask me an other example of "conflicts we can't avoid".

> Topic:		Kerberos V5 mit Debian

He asked me, if a german talk would be okay, and I said "yes".

Well, we had some bad luck with speakers who needed to cancel their
talks - but it seems it worked out well.  Not perfect, but well :)

> Topic:		Ubuntu Development Model

Strange thing, no feedback form for his talk.  It was the last talk of
the day, and I came there to pick up the forms of the day, and I know
exactly, that Wolfgang announced the feedback forms as he did with the
other talks.

Well, I think as an expierenced speaker Michael knows what went well and
bad in his talk :)

Yours sincerely,
