'Even without abolishing dev-rooms, it would still be possible to create
tags for the talks in each room (e.g. some talks in the SDR room may
have both an "sdr" and "ham" tag and some talks in other dev-rooms may
have a "ham" tag too) and produce index pages on fosdem.org for every
tag.  Then if the Ham topic didn't get a dedicated dev-room, people
interested in that topic could still see a list of all talks tagged
"ham" in other rooms.



This idea would absolutely get my backing, especially as due to the nature of the rooms ULB has available, some tracks must be in small rooms despite being popular. A tagging system that would let people assess talks by the content rather than the location seems to have a lot of potential.
