Can you name the actual column you want to quit to be
more concret.

I disagree here, what about the main text I proposed
for this page ? I think sponsor brand are well known
enough and I would rather emphasis on speaker like it
is right now.

The form is a _lot_ of work to modify so we'd better
be really sure of what package we want to propose.

Isn't that why I've been asking feedback on form ?
Please concenr people, say something !

Putting apart that I disagree with some changes,
that's a LOT of changes to be done for this weekend.
Quiting things can be has time consumming as adding
things if not more. I already spent many hours on it
(basically 4 to 5 hours daily on it). I won't be abble
to handle all that changes you are actually asking to
re-organize 75-80% of the Brochure !

I'll be on IRC tonight, we should try to find a
smaller changeset if we really want to finish by

BTW, page 2 is actually a right page. The page behind
the cover is generally blank.
