It was - but if others are like me, they may not be paying attention to
all email from the list ;-)

Yes, it wasn't a criticism, just information. A way to extract name,
email address and talk title as a CSV would be great, as that would
allow easy export + mail merge.

Thank you for the information on accepted/confirmed too - I was not
clear that I had to do that, I thought speakers needed to do it. All
cleared up now.

Thank you,
