Right. I don't want to offend anyone or sound negative, but I do think
it's indeed important to not have one distribution being
over-represented during the meeting, so I'd prefer to avoid having other
Mageia people joining -- unless there's a really really good reason for
someone to join.
That being said, if you have the opportunity to drop by in the evening,
I'm sure something can be arranged for dinner.
Les gens heureux ne sont pas pressés.
