I have announced the bof registration on Debian Gis list[1] (and the
discossion stretched even into June[2]).  So there is obvious interest
of participants in this BoF.

While I have registered several team BoFs I would rank this one as
highest for video coverage.  The rationale is that there was obvious
interest of several team members but some of them will not be able to
attend.  The Debian GIS team has done quite some moving in the last two
years and a common meeting (be it in one room or from remote) has IMHO
some importance.

I have understand this situation but please if any of the BoFs could
get video coverage please choose this one.

To my perception this requirement is given in this case.

Kind regards
