Items discussed

Organizers started editing the website, and adapted the CFP text to include
wineconf proposals. They are going to remove past year sponsors from the sponsor
box but they plan to add the ones confirmed sponsorship soon. Organizers are
looking into booking a good bunch of hotel rooms for the conference days and
some days before and after. The idea is to have the majority (ideally all)
attendees at the same hotel to increase hallway track and spontaneous
activities. Note that locking the rooms in the hotel is not forever, and they
will be available for normal booking at some point in September. The idea is
that con attendees should be able to book rooms for a special price.
