Being under one tent is a good thing, even when is not quite clear who owns and runs the tent, but right now this is like trying to have some important conversations in a bar where all talk at once and the DJ has the music at such a level that you can't almost hear what the other is saying, much less when many of us speak a different language.

>> Sounds a bit negative to me Jorge ;) Personally, getting everyone under one tent is itself a good start. I'm personally prepared to look for solutions, and I expect others are too. Plus, it is the Western festive season, which ought to inspire a bit of good vibes all around ;)
