[Edinburgh-pm] Summer workshop query

It has been suggested in other circles(1) that it would be a good idea
to have a small series of summer workshops in the run up to YAPC::EU.

The motivation it seems is to provide a series of events which together
could afford to bring a couple of extra overseas perl 'stars' to their
workshops and then to YAPC::EU. The enticement would not just be
financial but would offer a little more variety in terms of places to
visit and audiences to present to.

Its an interesting suggestion, so I thought I'd sound y'all out on this.

I've already queried whether actual/potential sponsors may see this as a
threat to the attraction of the main event. Feedback from appropriate
parties is being sought.

General feedback is welcome, as is any interest in organising such an
event for Edinburgh (presentations by/for ed.pm has been mentioned a
couple of times before).
