OpenWrt Summit Committee Call - July 19th

- Soliciting more sponsors so that we can offer travel sponsorships. Let's talk specific leads/make introductions.
- How many talks will we have?

- How should day two be structured - number of workshops etc

The questions on number of talks and structure of both days are to get an idea of the shape of things.

We have had some talks proposed on papercall.io, no workshops just yet. We will decide the structure of the workshops when we have had some proposals.

Talks - Rather than just offering 30 minute slots (25 mins talk + 5 mins Q&A), we will ask for proposals for 20 minute talks and 40 minute talks (both with an extra 5 mins discussion time). This will allow for some more variety throughout the day.
Around 7 talks (not including the 10 minute sponsor talk slots) as well as a slot for lightning talks - allow attendees to sign up during first coffee break and lunch. (This can be a tricky approach but usually once the first person signs up, the slots fill quickly)

Federico explained his suggestion of having developer sprints on the second day. The concept is that core developers and community members all come together and work on OpenWrt/LEDE throughout the day. Not only does this get work done on the projects but it strengthens community and is great for networking.
Hauke and Federico will work together looking into this.

Sponsorship - If we have more sponsors we will be able to offer travel scholarships to core developers or speakers who might not otherwise be able to attend. Asked for specific suggestions from everyone on people to contact (other than those I have already reached out to) and they will ask internally.

CFP - people will spread the word that this is now open.
