Hi!
We got scheduled to Meeting point 2 on Saturday, from 12:30 PM to 3:40 PM,
there are currently free slots after the lab but also OpenLMI guys would
like to share our machines :(

How many machines I should ask for? Last time I heard about 4 machines,
so to have some reserve 6 would be enough I guess (and OpenLMI guys are
going to use them too).

Btw. not only shrink was dropped but we would not be able to provide
Windows at all (licenses etc.).
