That's my understanding as well, and I wasn't clear in the minutes - or,
actually, in the meeting.

Specifically, I'd been suggesting that if we had a dev-day after FOSDEM, we
could solicit attendance during it, Kev (quite rightly, on reflection) said
that people would have booked travel, and we would be unlikely to get
spontaneous attendees that way.
