Sorry, no. I'm on the wrong continent :-)

If you would, I'd appreciate it. Sometimes I feel that the
distutils/setuptools discussions need better input from the
non-web-developer community. And even more so from the "not a
developer, just a user" community! But the various communities
involved seem to struggle to appreciate each others' viewpoints, to
such a great extent that it's hard to make any progress.

Good luck with the Summit!
