If we want the GHM to officially become a GNU outreach event, maybe we
should change the event description, and advertise it to the general
public.  It's not only for "GNU maintainers and active contributors" any
longer in that case.

The only aspect that leaves me slightly worried is the danger of
diluting our political message if we accept many non-GNU speakers.  An
example is the recent Emacs Conference in London where we met; the event
was technically very interesting, but with hardly any mention of free
software.  In my opinion GHMs should remain strongly centered around GNU
and free software, and not become generic software conferences.

That's true.  Maybe I'm worrying too much.
