Hi Rich,

Personally I'm fine with the result of the evaluation, accepting those 
9. Maybe putting in the proposal "Enterprise Integration Patterns in 
Apache Stanbol", because I personally know there is much more stuff than 
what the proposal describes. Besides we already talked with one of the 
guys with two talks (one accepted, one rejected) to maybe merge both 
proposals into one talk.

So that would mean 10 talks, booking 2 slots for the panel discussions, 
if you still think is a good idea (read bellow).

What the decisions has to be taken? Because I think Andy is on vacations 
for some days.

Sorry, I missed that email.

Well, without knowing the general layout, we sketched a full day track with 9 slots (mixing short and long ones), plus 
a final discussion panel.

How would be the final slots design?

It is also particularly interesting for us to gather together with other 
data-intensive projects to discuss the intersection of their approaches 
with Linked Data / Semantic Web technologies. There are some projects 
(good represented by talks) quite related with other Apache projects 
(Hadoop, Solr, Camel, ManifoldCF, etc).

Actually we didn't think so much about it... We do not have sponsor, and 
wewere thinking about something much informal and open to everybody. So, 
if it is not feasible to allocate it, I think we can manage to gather 
together the community with the panel discussion, and try to meet for a 
beer somewhere. Although I'd prefer to await for Andy to decide 
something about that.

Thanks so much for all your support on this, Rich.
