I definitely like this approach.

I'd say that once lightning talks are given, all other organisation may be
done in a wiki (on wiki.python.org), with emails to this list if absolutely
necessary (but preferrably not).

A sprint organised around the OSDC would be a good idea, then non-Melbournian
attendees can sprint too. We just do all the hard work of organising it. Of
course, when I say "we" I mean someone other than me ;)

Lightning talks are always good value, regardless of whether someone would
want to get involved in a project. It's always good to hear what others are
doing, and a short 5-10 minute lightning talk is a great medium for getting a
bit of publicity. Also, lightning talks are fun as hell. In fact, I'd like to
see a good 20 minutes or so devoted to 4 lightning talks every time we get
together. If we can't make up the 4, then we gang up on each other and get
people to just talk about cool modules they've used recently :)
Could be a good meeting format. Lightning talks followed by an in-depth
presentation by someone?
