Some BSPs have very few (3-5) and some have rather much attendants (>
20). It all depends on who likes to come :-)

That date is rather unfortunate as Debcamp starts on Sunday so I guess
many people will be preparing travel or will be traveling already...

You might want to start a wiki page linked from
http://wiki.debian.org/BSPMarathonLenny and we could mention your BSP in
the next 'Bits of the Release Team' if we get a bit more of advance
warning :-)

Note that it's also important to make sure people who cannot attend can
still participate in the (online) BSP, normally we use #debian-bugs on
OFTC as a channel to coordinate bug squashing during BSPs...

Don't hesitate to ask for more clarifications or help.
