In retrospect I think I have misunderstood the purpose of the meeting
and that there was no need for remote participation of other members of
the Haifa local team, given that it made some people in the room a bit
more uncomfortable and that there was already a long queue of speakers
at the BoF.
I was originally under the impression that some more people outside this
project will be in the talk.
That said, I do have full confidence in both Jitsi and Shachar and don't
consider this talk as recorded and practically as not broadcasted.
(I opened a room in Jitso.org and sent it by mail to several people of
the local team. In practice only Shachar joined. Lior Kaplan tried to
join but failed to get audio, and left).
