Dear Myriam,

Please note that the target of the Ubuntu Swiss Team (as for all local
team) is not only to organize release parties. The wiki page and its
contact list is also a place where people can get in touch with the
team members and get help, especially for beginners. Please note that
I have been contacted several times by people who needed help in my
region. And with all due respect for what you are doing in order to
organized these events, why would you have the right to ask the swiss
ubuntu community to be dissolved?

Best Regards
