Iam very confused by what you say. This is definitively not what i
VDD is a great thing for thouse who like meetings and conferences.
And iam very happy that you organize it and all the people from
different projects come there and have fun and talk with each other.
And i very much would want all multimedia developers to go there and
meet each other as well as people from FFmpeg, Videolan, libav and
all other projects if they like such meetings.

But iam not a conference / meeting / party / traveller guy. I really
dislike going to anything like that. That has nothing to do with it
being VDD or something entirely different.
It certainly doesnt revolve around FFmpeg and Libav but thats the
context in which ive been asked to come there by people.
