Be that as it may, we (FOSDEM) are not going to put ourselves at risk of
legal problems just so we can make it easier for people to attend.

If we *can* make it easier for people to attend *without* putting FOSDEM
vzw at risk of legal repercussions in case a person we don't actually
know disappears, we will do so. Writing formal invitation letters from
an automated website doesn't fit that bill, however.
