I'm glad that GHM 2014 is being thought about.

I'm also however not entirely happy with merging it into another event.
Perhaps it would be possible to hold GHM immediately before (or after)
the Libre Software Meeting?

     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.
