It is my hope to get the wiki page adapted with a proposed time schedule
and some other things. We just all need to catch with mail etc after
budapest before getting to that.

what we should not do is to repeat ACEU and have 1 spreadsheet where we
copy/move all the talks constantly, that was very time consuming and error
prone, instead it will be done with google forms.
