Gil - you renamed the page "MediaWiki developer meetings" on mediawiki.org to "Events", which seemed fine to me at the time, but now I think it was a mistake. The page is now getting filled up with events that may potentially be interesting to MediaWiki developers - like LibrePlanet - but that aren't MediaWiki-focused in any way.
I created that page so that there would be a record of MediaWiki-based events, past and future, because I thought it would be useful to see at a glance what all the events have been, and what additional ones there will be. But with a generic name like "Events", the page gets opened up to potentially dozens of additional events a year - anything related to open source, Linux, PHP, enterprise software, and so on; and thus, the original intent of the page gets a lost. There's a note at the top of the page explaining that the page is only for MediaWiki-based events, but many people (including you - no offense :) ) are ignoring it. So I think it makes sense to change it back to the old name, and maybe create a new page, called "Additional events" or something, that holds everything else - including borderline events like Wikimania.
