I was already replying, but a virtual meeting is a more feasible idea. Suggest you edit your first post here, and adjust the topic subject to match that
As for having a non-virtual meeting, I'm not sure the average contributing developer has the kind of money to travel to far away countries. (It costs 500+ USD for me to fly to Orlando; so how about you come over here instead
) Except for the small core team, all are volunteers. Linux Mint doesn't have the kind of backing as Ubuntu has (Canonical has 500+ people on its payroll).
