DrupalCon Boston 2008 Confirmed?

UPDATE: DrupalCon Boston 2008 has now been officially announced.

Judging by boston2008.drupalcon.org it seems that the planning of DrupalCon Boston March 2008 is well underway. I've even seen emails with dates about session-planning, yet I can't find any news or announcements about it anywhere. What's going on? Is Boston 2008 confirmed? How come there have been no announcements?

I have been wondering for a while now when there would be some news about the next DrupalCon. I was rather disappointed about not having been able to make DrupalCon Barcelona 2007. And I decided way back in September when the last DrupalCon was on that I would definitely not miss the next one. Since then I have been listening out for rumors and noises about it, but there has been nothing concrete. Can I get excited about Boston 2008 or do I risk disappointment?
