They got their second choice.
I never chose Little Napolean and he wasn't on my alternate list either.
Please stop assuming everyone in a given country actually agrees with
what their government has done or is doing. This is the most
distressing aspect of this thread: Debian is (supposed to be) a group
of intelligent, like-minded individuals whose individual nationality or
origin is largely irrelevent. There should be only 2 requirements for a
conference: someone is willing to sponsor it, and enough people are
willing to come to make it worthwhile. This idea that conference
locations need to be vetted based on the politics of the host country is
dangerous and stupid. What Debian is about has nothing to do with
individual nations or their politics. We should be better than this.
