The program really should be around A5, or nobody will carry it
around and it loses its point.  I like to see one with all the
abstracts and bios (like all other conferences have) probably
with photos and probably also listing other GNOME people that may
not be speakers.  That's a bit hard to gather and sort out in a
limited time without missing some people out, but is more useful
than say two or three interviews that nobody reads on paper these
days anyway...  We can put something like Glynn's 101 Things
About GNOME talk from last year there..  or other 'things about
GNOME' kind of lists...  For bonus, add more humour.

There are lots of interesting ideas, for example, list Top lists
of various activities during the past year.  Top bug fixer /
opener / patch submitter / committer / mailing list poster /
....  These things can be easily extracted if you contact the
right people.   Another idea that we definitely don't have enough
time for is to ask every developer to identify other developers
they regularly work with or contact, and create an informal
relationships map.  See this BusinessWeek article for example:
