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 if you missed the meeting.
In the meeting we discussed each of the 10 evaluation criteria mentioned
in the 2008 RFP as they apply to each of the proposals. Please make
sure you review all of the submissions 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) must rank the proposals from best to worst (from 1 to 4,
where 1 is the best), and submit this ranking privately to myself
before Monday, July 30, 2007 at 20:00:00 UTC .
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
- 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.
