I think we should plan to get the CFP out by this year as much as

The moment we push it to Jan it has a tendency to leapfrog into May
and June - speaking from past PyCons.

Let us discuss the items to get the CFP out ASAP - that is very

I think we should make a call for early conference than later. The
