As long as they come to talk about Mesh code and how to improve it, I
see no problem with this.

I think its much better to get some feedback and maybe code for our
open codebase from anyone than just blocking it off.

What we don't want (thats at least my perception of the last
Battlemesh) is someone holding a talk and using it for advertising his
commercial or military company thing.

I am not sure how wide you define "war industry", but I think you are
aware that I am working for a research institute that does mostly
military projects?
