Hello everybody.

I've been contacted by Pascal Rullier (in Cc), an organizer of the Libre
Software Meeting / Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre.  The 2014
edition will take place in Montpellier (southern France) from July 5 to
July 11 2014, and Pascal has kindly offered to host the 2014 GNU Hackers
Meeting as well at the same event.

We should discuss the exact modalities with him, but he told me they
have a large 800-seat dedicated amphitheater, with video recording
facilities.  In my opinion having such a huge place (if reasonably
filled) may blur the event into something different and more "vertical"
than we're used to, but it might be worth a shot.  Or maybe we could try
asking for a smaller room for our technical meeting but also do some
talks for the public in a big room, in a way separating the public
outreach part.  Of course we can still have the GHM open to the public
as well, but I'm a little hesitant about saying that a program such as
ours at can attract 800 people within
a larger conference.  Or maybe I'm just unnecessarily prudent.  What do
you think?

In any case, let me thank Pascal again.  We don't receive offers such as
his every day.
