I just exchanged some messages with Yader. On the first part he is willingly to do more talks and to participate in the python hacking. But he is concern of doing this long bus trip alone. All people acepting the bus option expressed that they were okey as far they do not have to do the bus route alone. We can talk about this on next meeting.

Do we know how many people might be considering taking the bus?

Mostly wanting to know if I will need to order an airfare or not before prices go up.

I just wrote to Yader to let him know that his tickets was approved to be by plane and he needs to update his ticket with flight itinerary as soon as possible.

Thanks, Neville.
