That's a very good idea, actually. I'm not sure whether 10 to 15 minutes
is going to be enough though (remember that you need to handle set-up
and questions, too); and besides, if the subject is something new and
shiny and interesting and Debian-related, there's no reason why I'd
refuse a 1-hour slot. Of course you'd have to be able to fill that
one-hour slot then, but that's a different matter :-)
