hope this picks up where the last one left off. they had such a huge crowd last year (18 months ago?) and nothing came of it. apparently theres a bunch of paper with signatures on it sitting in a closet somewhere. now they announce this one with 7 days notice? not impressed by this effort, though i'll support it.

From what I understand, this GGM meeting is a planning meeting, not a public meeting. I was asked some 2 months ago to be a part of this planning meeting, and was sent an agenda for the meeting.
