Another question. In the before times, when we just had that simple form 
to submit forum sessions and then the TC/UC/Foundation reviewed the list 
and picked the sessions, it was very simple to see what other sessions 
were proposed and say, "oh good someone is covering this already, I 
don't need to worry about it". With the move to the CFP forms like the 
summit sessions, that is no longer available, as far as I know. There 
have been at least a few cases this week where someone has said, "this 
might be a good topic, but keystone is probably already covering it, or 
$FOO SIG is probably already covering it", but without herding the cats 
to ask and find out who is all doing what, it's hard to know.

Is there some way we can get back to having a public view of what has 
been proposed for the forum so we an avoid overlap, or at worst not 
proposing something because people assume someone else is going to cover it?
