Alize that's between you and Graeme... ;-)

Tim's 'just' doing code sprint, lightning talks and demo theatre.

Hi Tim, 

Just note that the Wine estate and CDSM can accommodate up to 44 people should the need arise. Its only the Grabouw visit that is limited to 22 people.

Ok. Given that editing the wiki requires creating a wiki account etc
which many will consider a hassle, I'm going to change the text to ask
people to email me with their preferred slot & details, and then I
will manage the posting to the wiki page myself. Hopefully that will
also prevent queue jostling as people edit themselves into the most
favourable slots.

I'll also remove the following text:

"The *demo theatre schedule url* is where the final schedule will appear: "

and use the wiki demo theatre page as the canonical demo theatre URL -
all ok with that?

Great thanks. I had a read through the page and it all seems clear enough.

Will do.
