Actually the number of volunteers in the organizing committee was
about even. In addition to the people you named above there was also
Patricia, Jon[1] and myself from the GNOME side.

There was probably more event volunteers from the KDE side, though.
However, we expected this being that Germany and Berlin specifically
has a strong KDE contributor community.

One thing that could be made a requirement (or at least taken heavily
into account) is that the original proposal be made cooperatively. We
GNOME folks came on board only at the first kick-off meeting. I do
think there was attempt by Claudia and Mirko to reach out to do this
but the proposal was done by them.
