Depends on the angle for those talks. The kind we have had earlier years
are 110% uninteresting for GNOME contributors so having them on
'developer days' is a waste of time and resources. Historically they
also been a waste of time on the 'user day', but in this case we will
not be doing a user day but instead just providing some talks to the IGC
conference. So such talks might hit home with the IGC crowd, while we
know by empirical evidence that there are no interest among 'GUADEC
goers' in them.

On the other hand local people in Spain and Europe are more likely to be
able to attend on Saturday and Sunday, and then have to return to work
etc., on monday. And US people will lose just as many workdays anyway,
cause instead of losing friday they are losing Wednesday.
