I think the "problem" here is that we have two disjunct communities:

1) The wider "Osmocom and friends" community, consisting of people related to
   Osmocom projects unrelated to GSM/cellular, but even reaching into the gnuradio
   crowd, who had historically also been sharing the Osmocom village.  This is about
   bringing together people working on various SDR / communications related topics
   for "hanging out, chatting, ...".  As I wrote before, people have reached out to
   me about this for months.

2) The "post LaF0rge" team operating the 2G/3G network at CCC events.  I see that
   as a rather "production oriented" team which has to work closely with the POC,
   etc. and which shouldn't be bothered/distracted by people who are not
   involved in that.

I'm always open to discuss, but after months of public posts on this
ando ther mailing lists, I'm not sure what there is to add.  In short:

* both villages are now part of Singularity City
* Osmocom Village has no separate tent/infrastructure but people will
  hang out at the singularity city hackcenter.
