I think I agree with Allan here.

If Oracle people want to come, they are welcome.
But I think the time available to them might be better used even for a
BoFH-like event...(assuming they wilL advertise their own products)

As for Dave's point, my the whole issue of a foss4g (never been to
any, wanted to attend last year's) is to put together people that work
together _AND_ have a strong preference for Free/OpenSource software.

Paul, as for RMS, while I do not agree all the time with him, we need
to have the speech/beer issue quite clear at all times. And we have to
take a stand (at least on a personal basis - mine is speech)
