Yesterday's Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended, or submitted comments beforehand, 
for the IRC meeting yesterday to discuss the 2008 hosting proposals. 
Please see the meeting log[1] if you missed the meeting.

In the meeting we discussed each of the 10 evaluation criteria mentioned 
in the 2008 RFP[2] as they apply to each of the proposals.  Please make 
sure you review all of the submissions[3] in terms of those criteria 
(page 5 of the RFP).

Ranking the Submissions

All OSGeo conference committee members (current members are listed on 
the wiki[4]) must rank the proposals from best to worst (from 1 to 4, 
where 1 is the best), and submit this ranking privately to myself[5] 
before Monday, July 30, 2007 at 20:00:00 UTC [6].

This is an important decision so I would hope that all OSGeo conference 
committee members take the time to review the proposals and submit their 

Aggregating the Rankings

The committee members' individual rankings will be combined by using the 
following scoring:

- 4 points for a 1st place vote, 3 points for a 2nd place vote, 2 points 
for a 3rd place vote, 1 point for a 4th place vote
- the most points wins
- in case of a tie, the most 1st place votes wins

Announcing the Results

All bidders will be informed of the winning bid by the end of Monday, 
July 30, 2007.
