Dear all, 

As you may know, Wikimedia Portugal (WMPT) took part in
WLM in 2011. A team of four ended up making a very successful event with
very little money! 

However, early this year, they said they would not
be available to continue and organize the 2012 edition of WLM. 

them, João Miguel Vasconcelos and I stepped forward. However, we clearly
underestimated the workload involved, as well as the time we both could
dedicate to this undertaking. Furthermore, unlike last year, WMPT
community seems much less enthusiastic about WLM. 

So, we discussed the
matter internally, and have decided not to hold WLM 2012 in Portugal.

I'm sorry to be giving such a bad news, but it is better to announced
it now, than to keep postponing it one more month. 

Thanks & regards,

Manuel de Sousa
