That is what I am required to obey each year when selecting talks for 
the devroom I co-organize. Then I don't know if FOSDEM, like some other 
circles (ASF included?) reinterprets its own rules sometimes.

Some devrooms are granted a specific exception. I understand the ASF is 
asking for one too.

Well, the decision is taken anyway so let's just see if the proposal is 
accepted. I just provided feedback in case it could be useful. I hope I 
will be busy in another devroom but I'll be happy to spend time in the 
ASF devroom too. Good luck!
