This event was publicly announced on a few channels, including
the elego website (but no, I don't expect you guys to look at that
site).

I will try to make sure that such events get announced here, too,
in the future (if they happen again).

Don't worry, it was not mischaracterized.

I can send you slide sets if you want to look at them
to get an idea about what speakers said.
I'd say if there is general interest we might even be
able to make slides publicly available (but that is not
for me to decide, so I cannot make promises without consulting
elego/collab.net overlords first).

Note that what Neels wrote was not what we told people, it was
what people asked us about and said to us, having misunderstood
a few points, or simply making assumptions out of the blue,
not based on actual facts. The one user in question who voiced his
concerns about wc-ng being destabilising apparently had the impression
that we were ripping out a known-working subsystem and replacing it
entirely by new code. He admitted that he didn't even know that
the design docs etc. are publicly available. My impression was that
he did not understand how development of wc-ng actually happens.
This was a complete non-issue in my opinion, I don't understand
why this was brought up here on this list.

Also, what Neels presented was only a really small subset
of questions that were asked. He did not mention the many
questions that were asked that all of us hear regularly
on our lists and know the answers to. He also could not
include questions from the second day because he was not there.
