It comes from the belief that GUADEC should be less about preaching, more
about participation. So the more talk sessions you have, the less BOF and
hacktime sessions you have.

Yes, they were very successful. We had an awesome line-up of talks! However,
the view David is putting forward is not based on whether that model can be
successful, it's whether we want to pursue that model at all... Is GUADEC
meant to be a bunch of talks, or is it meant to be a whole lotta discussion
and hacking?
