I'd like to state that distilling the broad objectives into tangible
outcomes specific to local communities is deeply required and
relevant. Often the event planning notes (on the wiki pages) adopt an
one-size-fits-all approach which builds on a template-form of FUDCon.
These sets of questions are equally applicable to events of small(er)
sizes and should probably be put up on the wiki somewhere to refer to.
