OK.  So we've said that we're happy to share a devroom.  This is good.
 Are we still waiting to hear from LO?

If we do share, what does that mean?  We develop a joint-program of
presentations?   This isn't as bad as it sounds.  Since Fosdem is more
developer-oriented we might not to deal with marketing or similar
presentations that would be interesting to only one project.  Instead
we could focus on technical topics, and many of these would be
interesting to both projects.

Would it be worth asking Calligra, Gnumeric and Abi as well?  Or would
they be focused on KDE/GNOME devrooms?
