Well, I plan on being there, but I'm not sure if I'll stay for the whole
congress. Nevertheless, if enough people also are there, we might think
about renting a whole room in a youth hostel or sth for all suckless
members. In the long run, this would be cheaper and more "teamy".

Politics are not bad per se, but there's a limit to when politics actually
inhibit development.
Development however constitutes influence in the long run, making it a
vicious circle.
