So what's your definition of private meeting, one where you were not present?
The term was first used at the Extremadura meeting which according to my
definition is not private at all... Using such a term is meant to show that we
(as a team of i18n people) want to make a difference IMHO. It's not meant to
exclude anybody on the contrary...
