a good idea is the GUADEMY we recently had in A Coruña. It was just a
start, but the idea is very good, get KDE/GNOME developers together and
have talks/tutorials/etc of things that are common to both desktops.
Doing separate tracks for KDE and GNOME (which is what mixing GUADEC and
Akademy would mean) might not be a good idea, since you'll get 2
separated groups with almost no interaction.

So, until we are all really interested in what the "rival" desktop is
doing, I think it would be better to organise separate events, and have
a 2nd edition of the GUADEMY (as part of FOSDEM if that helps), with
more focus on collaboration between desktops, so that people really
interested in the collaboration can attend. All others can continue
going to GUADEC/Akademy.
