I don't remember all the details anymore, but we have plumbers right
before, and Linaro connect right afterwards, both conferences that
also have considerable overlap with XDC (we have a lot more than x86
folks since 2-3 years now). Bunch of people decided not to do XDC this
year even, because too much travelling in one row. Plus Google's limit
in scheduling a room, plus Khr f2f. We'll try to do better next year,
but sometimes perfect scheduling is just not an option.
