Regarding physical meetings/events...

I would agree but add that involving local law enforcement only as a last resort is something that
has been raised as an issue with some of the *cons - even by prominent linux core contribs!

I would suggest that including law enforcement earlier rather than as a last resort would help
eliminate the perception that organisers are trying to cover things up.

Saying this, I agree that a long list of rules is not required and common sense needs to be applied
but there is always an incentive to try and "keep it in the family" - its just human nature.


p.s. the one L-pm pub meet I attended (many years ago) was not friendly at all. Never had a reason
to try again. Not had problems with LUGs, makerspace, reprap or dog rescues so I don't think it was
"just shy/retiring me" :-)
