LCA2008 had an oncall number, which entered a hunt-group of team mobile 
numbers out of hours. Pretty much every year since then has one, and 
they generally are referenced on the house keeping slides during the 
morning sessions.

The on-call phone is carried by a core team member during the day, and 
by a roster of team members over night for the week of the conference. 
To request a core team member finish a near 12-hour day, and then spend 
another 8 to 10 hours staying awake in the off-chance a jabber message 
will come in, might be a little bit too much to ask people who are 
generously volunteering their time already.
