Meeting people, hearing about the latest GNUnet news, and tweaking Ralf
into adding Guile support in Automake.  ;-)

Lightning talks were nice.  More of them, maybe even shorter, with
people describing what they work on, would be nice, as Simon suggested.

Good!  The amount of time allocated to the main theme vs. the amount of
time for other topics was good IMO.

As others said, more than 50 people would entail the frustration of not
being able to meet everyone, and it may be less convivial & informal, as
was already said.

A larger event may also require people working full-time on the
organization, a larger place, resorting to catering, etc. and thus more
founding, as Brian noted.  Thus I like the idea of having several
“small” GHMs (< 50 people) over the year instead of one big thing.

It didn’t influence my decision because I wasn’t interested in GUADEC.
It apparently influenced others, which is a good thing.

Thank you for this well-organized, friendly, and insightful meeting!
