Just so there's no misunderstanding, "we" above is "the Wine Project
Leadership committee", as opposed to "CodeWeavers", right?

I would like it to be clear that this reply is as a member of the Wine
project, as opposed to a CodeWeavers contractor. At the same time,
since apparently Valve's willingness to attend in Canada, but not in
Japan was a consideration, I think it's only fair to point out that
CodeWeavers also has significant customers in Japan. Were they asked
as well?

Although I'm confident Ulrich would make a great host, I don't think
anyone would be terribly surprised to learn I'd be a little
disappointed if WineConf 2019 wouldn't be in Asia.
