| Yes, you can say that it is unfair and I do understand your view.

| Yes there are two 60 minute Archetypes talks since that project is very
| popular, interesting and at the same time also filled with questions.

| Looking at Zope track there are four talks that mention Plone in their

| Past, present and future of Plone.
| Link management in Zope/Plone.
| Organizing Zope and Plone.
| Two of those talks are not Plone-specific ( link management and

As I have told you and Martijn, this talk is only very remotely related to Zope
and CPS, and it should go in the testing/qa track. But if there is no other
option, I'd much rather keep it for another conference and leave some room to
Florent and Julien who have more interesting things to tell.
