Both should be identical, as I carry patches around.

This database does contain much more than the list of conferences in Act.
It has all the Perl conferences and events I know of (272 at the moment).

You can figure out which conferences are Act conferences by checking
for the act_open key. What's missing to generate the list on
http://act.mongueurs.net/conferences.html is a way to tell apart the
Act conferences hosted by the French Perl Mongers (most of them) and
those hosted elsewhere (see at the bottom).

I suppose I could add a act_instance key to disambiguate between the
various instances.
