[OSGeo-Conf] 2011 Process

So, to pick up a thread from April (!!!)
the 2011 process need to be started up. My rough nose-count from that
time indicates that the balance of support was for the "modified
status quo" namely a continued annual international event, but with a
lighter overhead for the initial bidding process.
Apparently the board has also discussed this and come down in favour
of the modified status quo.

I would like to add one more decision before we start 2011 planning,
and that is "regional rotation". Namely that, before we solicit
letters of interest, we clearly state that acceptable proposals from a
particular region will receive preference. Further, I would like to
propose that the rotation be set as Europe/North America/Other, with
2010 being Europe, 2011 being North America and 2012 being the next

Can anyone violently opposed to the above please speak up? If I hear
no objections, I will attempt to write up a more detailed process page
on the wiki that reflects the state of affairs for the 2011 process.
