daniel, first question: I'm not sure if you were at the board meeting, but Ralph said he's still waiting to here from Cisco. If we're unable to confirm it by early next week, we'll start looking at alternative venues.
no but i read the minutes
(question was from before the board meeting)
Second question: I *think* this is roughly what happened: lighting talks were "sign up in advance", and we got maybe a couple of people signed up. Then one summit (possibly the most recent) we had spare time, and a bunch of people who hadn't prepared a "talk" but wanted to quickly show something they'd been working on. I agree we can probably merge one or the other, or the latter doesn't need to be on the wiki but can be organized on the day.
I think people just attach more weight to a talk, expect slides, etc.
