Just float your ideas at the beginning of the Barcamp and let the
crowd help in scheduling them. Also, don't worry too much about
preparing everything in advance. You already have a lot of valuable
experience to share, so you'll do just fine by going with the flow.

Sounds good to me; I know there are many people and places that do
stuff like that with varying results. Better tool support would be
very useful and I think Git is a big step forward for such use cases.

OK, no problem. If things go well, the Barcamp will be pretty hectic
and covering lots of interesting stuff, so I wouldn't count on having
too much spare time to prepare anything much during it.

Let's meet at the Hackathon on Tuesday and see where we are then.
