I suspect a lot of it is that, given people's busy schedules, February 
seems far away. Also, I wonder how much discussion has happened outside 
of these lists. Is it really that there hasn't been much feedback?

Fabio started this ball rolling, so I would be interested to hear what 
he's heard.

Requested feedback given;

Virtual meetings are never as good, and I really don't like this idea. 
In my experience, just as much productive decision making happens in the 
unofficial after-hours activities as during formal(ish) 

I think it is very important that the meeting remain in-person if at all

Personally, I don't care where we meet, but I do believe Fabio already 
ruled out a relocation.
