Slots can be moved to avoid conflicts. There are 5 still-empty slots (1
user, 2 app dev, 2 platform), and we have room for maybe another 8
lightning talks.

There are 4 outstanding presentations where we've proposed lightning
talks instead of full presentations, 1 outstanding lightning talk
proposal, 2 wait & see, and 5 proposals that only arrived in the last 24
hours, that we haven't considered at all yet.

All in all, looking at those late arrivals, it looks like the inn will
be more or less full, and resolving conflicts is going to be our major
concern from here on in. If there are sessions which have not yet been
proposed that you want to get in, then now is the best time to do it -
by the closing date, there will be no room left in the schedule.

If there are any sessions which you think are conflicting, we'll try to
move them around. Let us know ASAP. If someone for a smaller specialised
session is OK moving to Oostelijk Meterhuis then I have no objections,
but I'm not keen on "revoking" an accepted presentation at this stage,
or moving it to a lightning talk. It would need a presenter to volunteer
to change it.
