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.
Correct, but RedHat also organizes devconf, AFAIK.
Do this kind of events either at a location where SUSE and many developers will be present - Nuremberg or Praha -
Yes, doing so would certainly provide an incentive to at least those contributors with @suse.com addresses to show up as the event would be local. However, as it stands today
- - SUSE is probably not interested in organizing oSC year after year - - we do not have a sufficient number of volunteers in either Nuremberg or Prague to even have oSC as an alternating event in these places
Of course there is always the possibility that we approach SUSE and indicate the possibility that oSC with it's current charter and approach to organization cannot stand alone and thus if it is to move forward it will require help.
or do it in combination with an event like FOSDEM or Linuxtag (if there will be again one in 2017).
Yes, a co-location with another event is a potential option. That may or may not include a change in the charter of oSC.
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.
