But lets assume I am being too pessimistic and for some magical reason we are going to end up with a large number of contributors participating in oSC16, but lets exclude those contributors with @suse.com addresses that also happen to work in Nuremberg as these will significantly skew the picture because the have the "its local" advantage.
So why is http://devconf.cz/ in Brno? Cause it's this cheap or cause the beer is this good? Both are two good reason. But before the questions is writte I'll offer the answer: Cause Redhat has an office in that town.
Do this kind of events either at a location where SUSE and many developers will be present - Nuremberg or Praha - or do it in combination with an event like FOSDEM or Linuxtag (if there will be again one in 2017).
I don't think your view is pessimistic Robert. It's a realistic view to the event and it's the right point in time to have this dicussion and to drive the issue forward.
