[sugar] Postponement of XOCamp Event to January

We will continue planning and working on the projects we already know about
and understand.  Where we don't understand them or need more detail, we will
use the electronic means of discussion we normally use most of the time.
Much of our planning happens outside of conferences, and will continue to do
so.  It's clear that many developers see a lot of value in having a focused
face-to-face discussion, and this postponement will allow that to happen.
I'm hoping that scheduling this event adjacent to FUDCON will help increase
local participation in both events.

If there are specific topics that could benefit from online discussion or
presentations sooner rather than later, we can use the time during the week
of November 17th to have those discussions.  Or we can do them at other
times, too.
