It's been tried.  They show up without pre-registering...

Well, the intent is for anybody who wants to get help to come, school
work or not.

But this raises a point I've known about for a little while, and we'll
want to discuss:  there was a football game yesterday, and Heather at
least had several students who weren't able to come because they were
in the Pride.  Is there a day (or evening) in the very near future
when we could do an InstallFest 2?

Sounds like we've solve the equipment problems for yesterday's fest;
we'll see how the next one goes...
