I tend to agree.  By keeping it to just one or two FUDCons a year, there's a
much better chance that a lot of the core developers will be able to attend,
which then becomes a self-reinforcing trend.  This results in a much
higher-value event where actual work can get done (a-la FUDCon1) in addition
to whatever user outreach / PR / marketing opportunities it creates for
Fedora.  Let's not reduce FUDCon to a prepackaged megaBoF.
