Even though I don't have much time to do Emacs development these days <sad 
face>, I would still try hard to come to such a meetup.  Meeting in person is 
indeed very important (at least for some people it is).  I might even try to 
use it as an emotional crutch to help me put Emacs fixes higher among other 
competing priorities :-).  It's easier to decide to spend time on something 
when it is associated with the pleasure of working with people I know in person.

So, strong +1, and thanks for suggesting it.

Best regards,
