As I mentioned in the mail, getting support is a lot about building
the right kind of expectations. You don't have to believe what I say.
But half of my duties at work are about bringing attention towards the
conferences we organize, I thought I'd share what I know.

The question is, whether an average Linuxwochen participant is
interested in Inkscape. I don't know how many people visited those
workshops, if the room was full, if people were really interested, or
if they were bored, and so on (another reason for a poll as the source
of actionable information, except it's not 2012 anymore :)). What I do
know is that inkscape-forum.de doesn't seem to mention these
workshops, and to me that sounds like a lost opportunity. I'm also
certain I didn't post announcements of the workshops at inkscape.org.
That the kind of contact with communities I was referring to.
