A bare minimum CSS is fine. As long as it's not geocities.

Yeah. This isn't gating.

I think it'd be quicker if you send out a mail asking for site admins
and just email them with basic instructions rather than sit down to
make a full manual. A couple of folks who did the same work that
Ponnuswamy and Devyan did last year. Perhaps they themselves if
they're free and willing.

Two people who are currently working on FOSSConf I feel have strengths
that are extremely valuable beyond the technical area. You with the
society/account related matters and Ramdas with contacts to the media
that can help advertising. We slipped on the latter front last time.

It won't be *that* hard to find more coders but the other skills are rarer.

That's nice. Govt. sponsorships will *definitely* help PR but I've
heard that they take a LONG time.
