Hi All,

Just to let people know that our intention was not to detract attention away
from EuroPython. We wanted to compliment EuroPython as a "warm-up to" and a
chance to visit Dublin beforehand.

Thanks, John, for your response. It's nice to have your support. Hopefully
when we find our footing this year, we can arrange our next conf date that
is suitable for more people, even you. It sometimes does feel like
organising for wedding. :)
