What you are talking about is the GetTogether the following day. I'd 
like to see some 'ask-the-expert clinics' run there (and not just lots 
of presentations). I'd be quite prepared to run one or two myself.

The danger with the hackathon is that it looses its focus. The Cocoon 
developer community is spread all over the world, and this is its one 
opportunity each year to meet in reasonable numbers. It would be a real 
shame if the hackathon changed from being a chance to discuss and work 
on core Cocoon development issues, and became a clinic for users.

After all, that is why the GetTogether the following day has been 
arranged. And I'm not aware of any 'hardcore developer' who is signed up 
to the hackathon who won't be at the GetTogether. They'll all be there.

As I said earlier, if you want to participate in the development of 
Cocoon itself, then you're more than welcome at the hackathon. If you 
want to understand how you might use Cocoon within your own projects, 
then come along to the GetTogether.
