I appreciate your offer, but real life experience shows that there simply are too many last minute changes (not only content-wise) preventing one from outsourcing this to some other service who is likely too busy to apply them manually at 2 am in the morning. I'll post a link here to the final programme as PDF as soon as I have it.

No need to google, you won't find anything. And I cannot say much in public about this here. But there were some clashes between the EuroPython Society and the local team, which basically had to assume the entire financial risk.
