I am deeply concerned by this decision... given that on Monday we had
discussed other options with regards to our offer. As late as yesterday
afternoon, Linuxcare staff had been researching and making preparations
for hosting this since we had not been informed that any decision was

While I do understand the need to hold these meetings in a central
location and perhaps this was an "executive decision" on your part. I
would argue that our offer to provide shuttle services for local
attendees (to and from the south bay) and coordinate lodging (at better
rates than the $199/night at Rickey's) through our travel agent for out
of town attendees should have warranted some discussion.

The meeting will be held at:

  Hyatt Rickeys in Palo Alto

VA Linux is helping to sponsor the meeting.  If you want to help

We're also going to be booking a block of rooms at the Hyatt at the
rate of $199 per night.  I will post info on how to get one of the
blocked rooms ASAP.

We also had a great offer to hold the meeting at Linuxcare in San
Francisco.  We decided that Palo Alto would be a more central location
(about halfway between SJO and SFO) and that the logistics of finding
hotel space (only a few weeks before the meeting), parking, etc. would
be easier.
