There was only an assertion that it looked like things might be okay. 1) To the extent that we have contacted the local authorities it seems like it would be good to write up the advice we have gotten. 2) It sounds like the advice from the WHO is to work with local authorities. It seems like we really ought to follow that advice and reach out. I'd go so far as to say that holding a conference without good contacts to local health authorities and good lines of communication/support would be irresponsible. Now, for all I know that's in progress or has already happened. 3) Once we do get advice (or now if we already have that advice) I think that would be valuable input to the debian-vote discussion.
