You have no control about the moment the organizers will schedule the
BOF...so scheduling other work meetings seems something to do....and,
from my experience of Debconfs, to do before the debconf starts..:-)

This is what I'm currently trying to organize for the i18n crowd, aka
"the Knights of Nicky-Nicky", with a planned daily meeting at fixed hours.

Having an early structure for the fonts packaging policy, with
voluntarily limited goals, such as fitting TTF and OTF fonts, would
already be a sufficient goal.

The idea of a test suite could come later, maybe.
