So, having just now talked to Pascal Bleser, I have the following

The contact person in charge of the A11y Devroom is Oracle-Louis
Suarez-Potts.  I'm not sure I know who this person is.

The difference between track and devroom is a track is sessions
(read-only) in the main conference, whereas a devroom is a dedicated
room on a specific topic and the people in charge of that room get to
call out sesssions as they see fit to the topic.

Generally, dev rooms are packed at FOSDEM, so as long as we make sure to
have interesting topics to draw in the folks, we should be fine.   I
guess this means we shift our submissions to this Louis fellow now.

Folks, please do keep me informed on what comes out of this when you
talk with Louis.
