FWIW, that's what people attending GUADEC-es has been doing for the last
years: attending GUADEC-es during week n, and then GUADEC during the
week n+1. And that includes people traveling from South America.

I'd say that people who have organized GUADEC-es in the past can give
more feedback on how good results have they got with this approach of
organizing the conference in a very close date to GUADEC.

Oh, and by the way, the only time the two conferences were in the same
location was during last year (Vilanova i la Geltr�evertheless, I'd
still say they've got good results.
