What we find is trying to fit development time in is hard (ie, getting those
heads together once a year and then conflicting with presentations). This is
one of the biggest uses of the LGM period the Scribus team has, and its done,
at this point, only once per year.
I think it should be officially 3-4 days still, but have mornings or afternoons
or 1-2 days for just development within or between teams. If it happens that
we have enough talks to fill more time, then there are surely some talks purely
for end-users that could be scheduled appropriately where only one team member
would have to go to.
The FOSS movement in Montreal and the following that LGM and other
organisations have there is pretty strong so we should have some time for
those people to get a lot out of it too.
The time period 6-10 May is ok for me, whatever is chosen.
