Now you're reading more than is present :-)

I'm assuming Justin is like myself in thinking, "shit. that woulda
been neat to know about and possibly attend." ... NOT "damn. that
shouldn't have happened without our permission." Your entire reply is
as if Justin said it *should not* have happened, when I suspect is was
more like *why couldn't the rest of us have been involved?*

I mean... this even has a Capitalized Name. And apparently Tuesday was
just the first day.

Or maybe it was just for elego and CN customers. Fine. Cool. But when
the first line of an email talks about an Event, then my first thought
is "huh? what event? why wasn't I invited? I like SVN. I think I could
have contributed in some way. I woulda been interested to talk to
these people." (and after reading the report about wc-ng, I think it
was mischaracterized, so I *really* would have wished to have been
there)

So all that said, your email is right in that we cannot and should not
attempt to control any happenings around Subversion. But I suspect
you're preaching to the choir, and Justin wasn't saying that at all.
It just seems weird when there is an event that seems/appears/sounds
like a "community" event, and we have NO IDEA that it is happening. I
cannot imagine any community event that would NOT want our
participation (our == the devs), so why aren't we hearing about these
things?
