you are fine, thanks. Believe me, I was shocked when I saw his mail,
even although I saw it coming. I mean, go figure: There is a code sprint
and a board meeting at the same location and even although you get
reimbursed for the board meeting you don't go?

And yes, it looks bad - so much more important that we patch up what
good things we have so that OSGeo does not take damage.
