Additionally, I'll be pitching gnome.conf.au (which I'm planning to hold
again at linux.conf.au next year) as an Officialish Proper GNOME Conference,
hopefully with some financial support from the GNOME Foundation. That may
help us fly out more GNOME hackers or have party-poppers or something. I'm
leaving tonight at 22:15. :-)

I just want to reiterate, given recent threads, that I make this proposal in
all seriousness, and without taking LA's bank account for granted. Hrm.
