  Nope. My question points into the future. If the money is will spend,
  the fee is ok. If the money is not well spend, it`s crap. Every for
  himself has to judge this after one or two years.

  For KDE Cebit Booth or Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin we don`t
  go in a hotel, we rent a flat for a week (400 Euros per week for all 10
  people). Moving more people to a booth than are needed to equip the
  booth may be great fun, but it`s not well spend.

I`m not disagreeing at all, I just raised a question and did not answer it.

  In Chaos Computer Club we have a statement, that membership meetings can
  take place via telecommunication. That`s perfectly legal. Moving people
  physically is not a legal requirement.
