I don't think it's so much the specific tracks that need work at this
stage, but rather more conference-wide things.  I think it would be
good to try to have a timetable for issuing call for papers, and so

Some kind of widely-spread announcement about EuroPython would be good
to have fairly soon, I think.

We have talked about installing Indico (the software we used last

starship.python.net machine.

We had a promise from the CERN people to help with our installation, I

  Some people say that a monkey would bang out the complete works
  of Shakespeare on a typewriter give an unlimited amount of time.
  In the meantime, what they would probably produce is a valid
  sendmail configuration file.                    -- Nicholas Petreley
