FWIW, in Spain we already organized this "smaller Desktop Summit",
called Guademy. It was organized on 2007 [7] and 2008 [8] (and in theory
they were successful). As on 2009 Desktop Summit was a combined event,
it was not organized again. So this option is more or less bring it back
Guademy, although with a more wider (non-local-Spanish) approach.

This solution probably would mean that the combined event will be
longer. In my personal opinion, GUADEC is already a really long event.
And not all people can be on all the days of that such long event. This
means that some days, mostly the last ones, GUADEC became a empty event.
It is sad to see how many people attend to some talks during those days.
