Hello everyone,

Coming off the wonderful experience of meeting up with a bunch of 
fellow Guixers (Guixs? Guix? what is our demonym?) in person for the 
first time at Guix Days, I would very much like to have similar 
experiences more often. I know there are Paris and London meetups; 
would there be interest in a New England meetup? I am based in Boston 
and know a few other Guix users in the area, but meeting up with even 
more would be great!

In terms of where such a meetup would happen, Boston would be optimal 
for me, but I can go anywhere the MBTA can take me. And, I don't 
necessarily have to go in person if there is a large enough group for a 
meetup that I can't attend--having a hybrid in-person and remote meetup 
(using Jitsi Meet or Big Blue Button if someone offers an instance) 
would be a good idea in general I think.

If there's interest, I think it would also be fun to partake in 
something London and Paris have decided to do: review parties (my term, 
not theirs). As part of discussions started around the patch backlog 
(see for example the thread starting 
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2024-02/msg00027.html), 
some folks who regularly attend those meetups decided to start 
reviewing patches there. While they suggested a friendly competition of 
who can review and respond to the most patches, I personally have no 
competitive spirit but would love to cooperate in this objective. 
Especially seeing committers bless non-committers reviewing patches, it 
would be great to help calm the 700-pound gorilla in the Guix room that 
is our patch backlog.

I look forward to hearing if anyone else is interested or has other 
suggestions!

All the best,
Juli

I'd possibly attend if there was a meetup. Curious to know if there's
a critical mass. I'm near Worcester but can drive or take commuter
rail to Boston.

I support the use of «guix» as the plural (geeks) and «guik» as the 
singular (geek) 😁
