Interesting... and I have been checking to see the log for that meeting.
 I didn't know the criteria for holding EMEA Africa meeting was that an
african ambassador must be present (although that makes sense ... it
didn't come to me as a rule).  I had problems attending for reasons
peculiar to Nigeria but I have long overcome that limitation. So, when
is the next meeting holding?

I believe its a little early to take a bow now and leave africans to run
EMEA-Africa.  I'd suggest we revisit this topic after the media has been
circulated and observe african participation up to the next release. I
have no bias whatsoever about Europeans chairing the meeting. OR -- we
could still use a European/Middle-East co-chair for sometime. Fedora is
more important than our differences. Now I know I may be naive ... but
that's just my perspective judging from challenges I'm facing within my
own small African environment.
