If you would find that helpful, that's fine, but as Jan says, the CFP 
needs to be the authoritative source of the actual talk proposals, while 
each "track chair" should be prepared to present me with a list of talks 
(referencing those talk proposals in the CFP system) that they wish to 
be their track.

For both Budapest and Denver, we created a great deal of headache by 
having multiple documents that all contradicted one another.

As was mentioned elsewhere on this list, we'll also have, I'm sure many 
'extra-track' talks that we'll need to fit in elsewhere in order for 
smaller projects to have representation. Ideally, over the next few 
events, this will encourage more communities to step up and plan their 
own tracks.
