Subject Re: Knowing which talks are already claimed by another ApacheCon track?
Date Tue, 17 Feb 2015 17:52:09 GMT
I've posted a spreadsheet in another thread.

People need to NOT TAKE THIS AS TALK ACCEPTANCE. Because it IS NOT.

Last year we had enormous confusion because people took a DRAFT 
spreadsheet as final notice, and made plans accordingly.

We definitely need better tools for this.
