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! Regards, --dkg
