Well, the desktop-summit dates were basically depending on the vanue. As
the german summer-break starts later than in most other countries the
university isn't available at other times. Might be useful to change the

We had a long discussion that basically broke down to the KDE people
wanting to start on Saturday and the GNOME people prefering a week-day.
