Yes, James, you're probably right. It was a joke, of course, but also a
kind of invite to a reflexion.
If we want to improve the participation of people from Middle East,
Africa, India, Latin America, it doesn't make any sense to make choices
thinking on what it's comfortable for all the rest, but not for them. Or
even on what it's traditional.
I think this is a real concern for strategy, and we can discuss it
better for the next times. Wikimania shouldn't be held always in July or
August. This is not the law, isn't written in stone. Before trying to
change the world, we should be able to change ourselves.
Just my two cents.

I agree, avoiding Ramadan isn't really
feasible. Wikimania is always
held in the summer, and I don't think we should change that.
In the south
hemisphere, the summer begins on December. Just a remark.
Wikimania is always held during Northern summer / Southern winter.
