holy shit, that freedom thingy again .. read on, my dear, as there was an 
ongoing discussion on this topic at that page - they used it because it worked.

there are 4 days of rawmaterial, 9h a day, which need to be cuted, mastered,
... and everything is based on volunteers time (which btw. did already a lot
of editing at the congress, and missed a lot of fun). I know some of these
people, they didn't look too good after 16h of cutting videos .. 

write them (the orga-team) yourself, get flamed back and your mail printed 
in next "Datenschleuder", or - volunteer yourself next time. they are always 
seeking good people in building infrastructre and helping out with their skills.
