Excellent stuff!

Will there be any coordination between CFPs?  We do have a few general
talks that are still valuable, either from great speakers on topics that
are always popular or because they help our communities.  But I imagine
a few submissions will end up going to only the LF's main CFP, not to
the individual event organizers at all.

Or do the PMCs already have more talks they're expecting than they have
space for?
