Huh? I didn't want to imply anything else. I'm just saying that there's two 
conferences that make most Samba developers travel around to meet. Those are 
SambaXP and the CIFS conference. So if we want to have WineConf sequentially 
with one of these events, those are the ones to aim for.

SambaXP is always in Göttingen, Germany, in late April. We already missed it 
for this year. The second one is always in Silicon Valley, in September. We 
don't want to meet in the US this year, either. So at least for this year, 
this isn't going to work.

Now, my suggestion for this year was to invite interested Samba developers to 
join us at WineConf. There's quite a few European Samba developers. Scott 
said something about talking to a couple of Samba developers at UDC. I guess 
that Jelmer Vernooij was one of them, and he's Dutch. So for him it's easy to 
get to Enschede. A couple of other folks are based in Germany, so it's 
possible they might join in as well.

That's all that I wanted to say.
