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

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.
