With all these discussions about changing things about GUADEC, like not
choosing Europe as a location and changing the date ... Didn't Guadec
work out quite well the other years? If the formula, then why change it?


I would love an extra conference in Canada, for example. But the GNOME
User and Developer EUROPEAN Conference is ... well, European. Right?

Although a lot of Canadians and Europeans would love Canada to become
part of Europe! We once made a tunnel* to the guys living on the British
Islands, maybe we can make one to Canada too? ;-)

* Regretfully is air-travel nonetheless cheaper than using the tunnel.
