So far I only received two proposals for talks in the devroom:
* Community based translations of games (Nils Kneuper)
* Game and Simulation development with Qt (Martin Scheffler)
Since these were submitted inside the deadline they are automatically
accepted. Of course we need some more talk proposals since having a devroom
with only two talks would be extremely boring.
I can extend the deadline for submissions by a week (until Sun, December 8th),
but afterwards I need to make sure that a schedule is available in pentabarf.
In case there are not at least 4 proposed talks each taking about 1h I am not
sure if it would not be better to ask the FOSDEM folks to cancel the games
So please submit proposals under https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/
If you have problems with submitting your proposal, send me a mail ASAP!
