Alexandre pointed out that GUADEC is at the right time. But not every
OPW rounds are during the summer! So some OPW interns go to GUADEC
several months later than the round. So why not doing the same also for
GSoC and all OPW rounds (for students not living in Europe)?

The point is also to have almost everyone together at the same time.
Having the small group of people from winter OPW separate from the
others wouldn't achieve the same feeling of belonging to a community
for them.

Also note that GUADEC is in the middle of summer and most of the
interns are students, which means it's at the right period for almost
all of them to travel. It would be harder to travel when they have to
attend school.
