Hi again,

Taco convinced me not to cancel the meeting due to a lack of 
participants, but I’d like to know why you (esp. if you attended 
previous meetings) decided not to come:
* personal reasons (family etc.)
* health (Covid, pox...)
* financial (too expensive?)
* ecological (avoid traveling)
* time (bad date?)
* place (too far? not comfortable enough?)

This might also affect upcoming meetings (2023 in Sibřina in September 
again, 2024 maybe earlier in Italy).

One person told me they wouldn’t attend conferences without mandatory 
face masks. (While it makes sense to wear a mask, I don’t think it does 
if you spend a week with the same people.)
