It's tough to just do lunch given the fairly narrow time window for it 
and how many talks I'm seeing from people here around that time.  Having 
a talk and a break worth of time, or something else that cuts across 
more time, would be more likely to work.  And I'm not real optimistic 
about being productive early in the morning after the EDB party.

Since I'm happy to be the jerk who announces which slots I'd consider 
missing for a cluster meeting instead, I'll list what I see as schedule 
possibilities during the conference itself, given the regulars I know of 
on this list and what talks I expect to be popular:

1) Friday, 5:30PM-?  Take over the room potentially as soon as the 
Postgres-XC talk ends and miss "Closing sessions" if we're concerned 
about starting early for people who have to leave on Friday night, 
continue into the BOF #2 time from 6:00PM-8:00PM.  What's nice about 
this is we have a room to grab and everything.

2) Wednesday, 6:00PM-?, after developer meeting.  I expect everyone to 
be tired of talking at this point, but it's a possibility.  Not sure 
where to meet though.

3) Friday, 9:00AM-10:00AM.  Could borrow one of the session rooms.  Not 
quite enough time and I'd expect attendance to be low for this one.

4) Thursday, 11:00AM-1:30PM.  Nice follow up to the "Built-in 
replication in PostgreSQL 9.0" session.  Would miss "Hypothetical 
Indexes towards self-tuning in PostgreSQL", "PostgreSQL in 
Mission-Critical Financial Systems", "Efficient k-nn search with GiST 
and other development"; not a lot of overlap in topics/speakers there I 

5) Friday, 10:00AM-11:30AM.  Leads into the "Replication Panel" on 
Friday at 11:30AM.  Would miss "PL/Parrot", "PgMQ", "Identifying, 
Monitoring, and Controlling PostgreSQL Traffic [through pgBouncer]".

Realistically, I think only (1) is feasible here, but there's the other 
options I see.
