Hi again,

first of all thanks for the feedback!

I'm sorry to hear that virtually no-one knew about this event. I had assumed
the organizers would have thought of the single most obvious place to
announce any event around Subversion development. dev_at_subversion.tigris.org.

That surely was a pretty stupid mistake. Duh. I'll remind our guys of it.

It was two one-day events, pretty much the same thing staged in Berlin on
Tuesday and repeated in Munich on Wednesday. See the agendas here:

(I was asked to attend in Berlin and present some of the slides. I ended up
answering questions to the best of my ability and noted unsatisfactorily
answered ones down on paper, to ask the list about them ... assuming that
everyone was in the know about the event in the first place!)

I personally don't oppose separate groups "conspiring" about Subversion,
giving it a fancy name and sending a resume of their insights to the dev
list. You might argue about that. Regardless, the "Subversion 1.6 Preview"
was surely *not* intended to be such a "conspiration". I'm sorry to hear
that it turned out to make that impression.

Won't happen again.
