Yes, I participated in the poll.  But there is a reason why we have the 
meeting in a public forum.  Not everyone who cares is one of the 13 
FESCo members.

Also, _all_ FESCo members should have been contacted in case plans 
changed.  Reading the lists, it appears yours did and were not able to 
make it when you originally said you would.  Mine could have in theory 
as well, but since I did not initially say I was available, I did not 
receive a direct notice, and I am equally not happy about that.  :-)
