I don't know. I think it was Jeff who said we should go for a two
day event. If we can pull it off, I'm all for it, but I'd much
rather have one fantastic day, than two boring days.

Personally, I would very much like to get as an event
on the GNOME calendar. Certainly not a GUADEC, but possibly
something with some attraction. The problem as I see it with this
plan is that travel to and within Australia is noticably more pricey
than on other continents.

I very much want to hear ideas from all sides about how we should
structure things. My primary goal is to make the event rock, and
leave people enthused about using GNOME and hopefully about
contributing to GNOME.
