I think running a Code Sprint and running a FOSS4G-Europe are two completely
different things in terms of effort but also in requirements for the venue.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that FOSS4G-Europe would fit into
the Vienna code sprint venue.

Although there is a fairly small overlap I'd appreciate if the Code Sprint
and FOSS4G-Europe don't overlap ;) I don't like the idea of separate US and
European code sprints as I find it important to have one global OSGeo Code
Sprint per year. In my opinion this argument is even stronger for the Code
Sprint than for the global FOSS4G.

If the Code Sprint returns to Europe in 2016 I could image that it makes
sense to run both events back-to-back although this would result in a quite
long event as both are almost running for a week.
