Are there any objections to creating this new repository for plain text
files (e.g. LaTeX or other markup) for any official Biopython talks or
talk abstracts? e.g. Is it better to have separate repositories?

If yes, should it start with (back-dated) commits for the recent BOSC
abstracts (at least those which I have as LaTeX files)?

Should we settle on a default licence for future content (e.g. actual
slides)? I would suggest CC-BY v4.0 for this.
