Hi Semen,

thank you for your suggestions. Your approach looks very much
like what we essentially had in the early years of EuroPython.

The major problem with this approach was that we lost institutional
knowledge with every single location change and more recently,
the workload also increased to levels that resulted in more and more
on-site teams losing interest.

With the new workgroup approach we have just announced to a broader
public we expect to address and resolve these problems.

Please see
for details.

Best Regards,
Marc-Andre Lemburg
EuroPython Society
