I must say I agree with Mitch. Even if somehow our government decide 
that it is ok to hold events by end of May, it still won't be safe 
(lawful maybe, safe apparently not), at least according to the few 
articles I read.

And in this sense, it is indeed not very responsible continuing while 
knowing this, as you may be putting people at risk. This is one of the 
reasons why we (GIMP as a project) decided to cancel our yearly 
invitations to contributors (keeping our contributors safe; that's more 
important than our software IMO).

Also anyway since everything is still so uncertain, nobody will make 
plans for 2 months ahead, even people in France. As I read your last 
meeting log, you are still hoping that people in France and close 
European countries will come. I personally believe it to be a false 

For ZeMarmot project, we are in France and I can tell we won't come, 
even if the event ends happening, and even though we love LGM!

Yeah pushing the event one year down the road might be the ideal 
solution. Many events are doing so and it's probably the best option. I 
agree. Personally I don't care that much about video conferences without 
the physical meeting part (my favorite part of LGM is meeting the people 
not the confs, even though many of these confs are very cool).
