Yeah, I was afraid of that. But do please check. In any case, I think we 
can live with such bandwidth.

Sure, let's aim for 12 then. I think we should send out a few special 
invitations to people active in the Grok community. Listing some that I 
don't think I've ever met at a sprint, for instance Sebastian Ware and 
Jeroen Michiel.

Definitely not asking you to spend money personally, you're already 
doing more than enough! We'll await news from Aroldo.

Perhaps the cultural stuff could be placed in the wood itself somehow; 
is there a museum of the defeat of the Romans by the Germans, for 
instance? That might bring it back to a more reasonable distance. Sprint 
time is precious as we don't have it a lot, so I'd prefer to get 4.5 
days of sprint time from people instead of 4.
