- the CCC doesn't allow meetings in their room(s) for an unspecified time
- the Corona situation is still unpredictable
- due to changing my job i won't have vacation in the next months

We waited a long time now before making a final decision, here it is:
we have to cancel the GHM 2020 in Hamburg. Sorry for that.

The main idea of GHM is to meet in person and a virtual meeting just
can't replace that. BUT... I recently talked with Darshit Shah and he is
preparing a video chat platform for GNU (no deadline yet). That would
allow us to virtually meet at will, e.g. to have a coffee|beer|whatever
and talk. When the time comes, Darshit will let us know.

I hope for a GHM in Winter or next year !

Wish you all the best, Tim
