I also think we should add a section in the 'Comments' field of the
form that says why we think Org-mode should get a devroom (or at least
a portion of one).  It may be helpful to identify approximately how
many users are on the mailing list, downloads/month, as well as note
that it is included in Emacs so there may be many more.  Whoever fills
out the form on the website should probably get this information from
Carsten before submitting.

If no one else volunteers, I will.

I've looked through the website quite a bit, and it is free for all
participants.  The only additional costs will be hotel accommodations,
food, and possibly parking/transportation to get there.  It sounds
like breakfast and lunch can be purchased on-site, but dinner would be
on your own.

Perhaps the organizer could find a good place meet for dinner for
those who don't have other plans.

We need to have the entry form submitted prior to October 16, but the
earlier the better is my opinion.  On October 23 they announce who was
accepted, at which point we should begin formalizing plans for talks,
participants, etc.
