[wtp-pmc] Fw: Status and remaining actions needed for EclipseCon choices

Having heard no objections to this proposal, and one confirmation, I'll consider it our best course of action. (since deadline is coming right up).
That is, I'll "return" 2 short talk slots, and lobby for 2 more demos.

Status and remaining actions needed for EclipseCon choices

I've changed the status in EclipseZilla for our firm choices we made today.

For demos, that's excepted 3, declined 5 and left two "on hold" in case we get more

For short talks, I accepted 4, and declined one, leaving 1 in limbo, and 2 slots open.

So, while we potentially have two more to accept here, I
wanted to let you all know what I learned about short talks.
(From Richard).

They _are_ going to be pretty much assigned "at random" to intentionally
encourage audiences to hear a wide range of diverse subjects (since they
are, after all, short talks).

So, in my humble opinion, I think that tips Neeraj's short talk to the kindly decline
category, as it seems a very narrow topic (very interesting to a few, but incomprehensible
or irrelevant to many).

Further, Richard mentioned that if we "return" the 2 unfilled short talk
slots, that would make it more likely to get 1 or 2 more demo slots.

So, I recommend we kindly decline Neeraj's short talk, and continue to
lobby Richard for two more demo slots, if at all possible for the program
committee to find room for them. The two demo's "on hold" waiting for
space are, in order,

or, if you have other recommendations).
