If you're having problems accessing the site, contact
webmaster@gplv3.fsf.org. If it's a serious problem and the FSF isn't
responding, you can e-mail me, and I'll input your comments for you.

That's because how this will work is basically up to the committees

Thanks really go to the people in the committee who agreed with them
being publicly available.

Technically, Mako and I aren't there to represent Debian specifically;
we're there because we are... something or other. Branden Robinson and
Greg Pomerantz are "officially" representing Debian.

AFAICT, they basically haven't had enough time to organize them yet. I
imagine that if people who were really interested in having the circus
visit their locale would step up and offer to help organize it, the
FSF would employ them appropriately.

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing
that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot
possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to
get at or repair.
