Additionally, Svetlana Belkin reaches out to LoCos to also participate in this track, writing that the track “is for technical and non-technical demos and is great for the various LoCo's who want to show off their work/events from 15.04 cycle and their plans for 15.10 cycle.” https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/loco-contacts/2015-April/006966.html
