    The hotel is only providing the low-level mapping between userland and
    the physical space; GNU will be the userspace, and at least half a venue
    is the people in it.  So arguably that could make this a proper
    GNU/Linux venue?  ;)

This is a PR issue -- a matter of what message is transmitted to the
public.  Many people have got the idea that GNU is a part of Linux.

If the people who run the hotel are willing to CALL it the GNU/Linux
Hotel during the period that people sign up for the event, then it
would be ok.
