I am terribly sorry if someone was offended by this comment.

I meant the opposite, of course, saying that even if those meetings were
closed to the public (and I know they aren't) it is still OK.
What I tried to say, is that you promote Perl (btw, I do use perl now and
then, and it is useful for some things I do, but personally for me the
programming language is C) and if you decided tthat tomorrow you are going
to hold a special event only for Haifa Univ. students, this is OK, becuase
you do it. It is preferable in the sense of marketing not to close the
event (please note that the installation party will be open to all!), but
if you this - this is your right.
