Two things:
1) we will probably have a developer room at Fosdem (Brussels) next year in
February. We have just started discussing the proposal [1] but due to the
nature of FOSDEM a focus on developers and cooperation with other open
source projects seems logical.So a great opportunity for those in need of a
conference early in the year :-) In October we will now whether it will
2) I think the goal of the committee should be to have a great conference
every year. Maybe the main focus should be how you can make this happen by
supporting the organizers). The reason I say this is because I'm not
convinced that setting too many rules such as when the conference should
happen, who should attend, ... will help reaching the goal. Perhaps a date
can be recommended (takes some choice stress away), but I would certainly
not exclude other proposals if they propose a different period.
