Thanks for your feedback! (cc'ing debconf-team here, which is the public
place for talks discussion, since this message already went out to
another public list, pkg-multimedia-maintainers)

Unfortunately, no one has stepped up to act as a coordinator for this
track yet.  There will still be arts and media presentations at debconf,
but they'll be evaluated as independent proposals (not in a track) if no
one volunteers to act as track coordinator for the Media and Art track soon.

Please let debconf-t...@lists.debian.org know if you want to volunteer
(or you can contact ta...@debconf.org privately if you have questions or
concerns that you don't want to be public).

I'd love to see a concerted focus on debian in art and media at DebConf
10, personally, and i hope that someone will step up!
