SF if being nasty with GMail. I'll have to speed up moving the list to scipy.org.

Unfortunately, we only have scheduled 30 minutes of lightning talks this year. 
We have twice as many full talks as we did last year. We'll probably only get 
about 5 or 6 lightning talks clocking in at 5 minutes, tops. In the opening 
remarks on the first day, we'll tell people to come talk to us (and by "us," I 
mean "Travis Vaught") during the break and tell us that they want to do a 
lightning talk about "Foo."

Grr. That means developers are not merging changes appropriately.
