I'm not afraid we can't fill the schedule; but based on previous
experience, I'm not totally convinced we can do it, either. I'd probably
have to ask a bit more persistently if I had to do a full schedule.

However, the question came from the FOSDEM organizers, not from me, so
the motivation is probably the first, rather than not going to be able
to fill a schedule. I just added that bit to clarify some things.

Yes, I agree. Incidentally, I happen to know the person who's going to
do the Ubuntu side of the devroom pretty well (Jan Claeys; he's quite
prominent in the Belgian Linux scene, like myself); I don't expect any
problems in coordinating with him on those areas.
