Looks kewl.

I've gotta run some errands and may end up missing the meeting, so here's my 
$.03 worth:

We need to decide now what pages we really need and take time to get them 
working properly. If we set them up with "TBD" info wherever we don't know a 
decision, we can make decisions as we need to and fill in the blanks as we 

Easier registration and accomodation pages, and easy access to info, are a 
high priority, imho, for the general public.

Easier entry and acceptance of talks (and uploading of info) would be helpful 
for speakers and track chairs. If we know ahead of time who the track chairs 
are, I'd suggest an automatic email notification to the speaker and the track 
chair of any talk entry, with a message, such as:

"""Thank you for your submission, "talkname", to EuroPython 2005. 

Jane Doe is the track chair for the "x" talks track. We expect to 
accept/decline submissions by DDate. Your track chair should contact you by 

The EuroPython 2005 Committee"""

At least that way, they're not left in the dark... And the track chairs have 
an automatic way of telling when they've had submissions.

Gotta run,
