In this thread, we talked and made plans so far for some place in France
(either Paris or Lyon). The wiki page you mentioned is an opt-in only
notification and I haven't edited that page nor was I subscribed which
is why I asked about private offers. Not everyone on this mailing list
got those notifications... so, of course, no one objected because not
many of us even knew Stockholm was a serious contender.

It feels like a decision was made without involving the rest of the
community that was already discussing this sprint.
