i have worked on getting veggie/vegan fare at yapc events before. i
haven't been up to speed on this yet and i will do so very soon. my
life/work has been swamping me. i have always had special food needs
covered at the banquet (even kosher meals brought in as requested). the
arrival dinner is usually more informal and sometimes harder to get
special food needs covered. i will ask and report on what can be done.
