Plone problems? It isn't even a plone site. People proposed to make a plone
site, but it is still the old ad-hoc site of last year.

The talks you see are only *approved* talks. These are the talks which the
chairman have accepted.

I don't mind. I would like to see such talks as well.
Since we've lot's of slots (even more than last year), I think we can even
provide several slots for these kind of talks.

hehe, we're doing what we can do... It's up to the chairman to accept talks
and only these talks are shown on the public site.
We've sent a mail to every chairman, telling to start finilizing the talks
they received.

Denis told me Guido was coming. Is it confirmed? I don't really know. But I
guess it is, since Denis told me he comes. That's all I know about it.
