Looks good to me. Thanks a lot!

My fellow DebConf organisers have not yet understood what BoFs
really are -- registering them in advance goes against the core

Workshop should be fine.

I always try to say "modern" VCS, instead of distributed. The
problem with SVN and all the other centralised VCS is not that they
are centralised, but that they basically don't know what merges are.
They pretend to merge, and SVN 1.5 even pretends to keep track of
what it merges, but in the end it just stays brittle IME. YMMV of
course. Lack of merging could get in the way, if we decided to make
merges an integral part of the workflow.
