It is hard enough to get people to commit if you already have stuff
organized. It's hopeless if you are still in "we could..." phase.
Really. I've seen it often in other similar cases. You can tell people
five times in a row that you need them to commit. You can whine as much
as you want that you can't plan without prior commitment. It won't help.

There is always some uncertainty in such matters. But I have little
doubt we could get a reasonable number of people together *if* somebody
would actually take up organising it. It's all about taking initiative.
However it seems there is nobody able and/or willing to do so, and
consequently the matter is pretty much settled...
