Thank you again for arranging the meeting.

Meeting everyone was the best for me, of course.

I thought the concept of lightning talks were good, and could be
improved even further.  You get a quick overview of something, and if
you aren't interested, it is over quickly anyway.  It also allows people
to prepare a talk on-the-fly during the meeting (as I did).

I would have found it useful if more people did a 5 minute talk about
something they are working on, just to make people be aware of what is
going on.  Especially people who don't give any of the longer talks.  It
makes sense to have some lightning talks in the agenda, and leave some
room for improvised stuff.

It would be great if lunch were sponsored and pre-arranged somehow.
While I don't mind paying it myself, finding the coins to do it and
deciding what to order felt distracting to me.

Silence the door bell. :-)

I think it was good.

As long as people are working on GNU stuff, it would fine.  I wouldn't
like an idea of inviting 50+ people from some other project, as it
wouldn't be a "GNU" hackers meeting anymore.

It seems like a good idea, but it didn't influence my decision.

Keep up the good work organizing these events!
