Hi folks,
we are having a great time, here on Foss4g, and the atmosphere is just 
full of ideas, flowing in the air, waiting for someone, who pick them.

To make it short, we started think about one of Foss4g Conference 
Committee scopes:

* possibly support other affiliated conferences

"We" the members of Central and East European Foss4g community (no 
formal body yet - just several people who meet here in Denver from 
Czech, Romania, Poland) have considered, that it would be nice to 
organize such local event, which would rotate around Central- and 
East-European area.

We hope, you support this idea and we would like to clarify some 
questions, regarding for example the name of the event, conditions and 
forms of support, which we can expect or might need from OSGeo etc.
Till now, we are working with name



	Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial - Central and
	East Europe.

There has been no official body setuped yet. But we would like to 
organize first event during May 2012. For organization purposes, we 
would like to use OSGeo infrastructure (mailing lists, wiki, IRC) - also 
because of the organization might move from team to team each year.

I already started to work within the wiki [1], were I hope to put some 
informations about the event. And we would like to put initial committee 
together for this conference-cee event, which would guarantee the 
continuity from year to year asap (time is running).

So, do you support the idea? How about the name "Foss4g-CEE"? Any 
conditions - financial, organizational, ... ? Any tips and hints, how to 
approach with the decision process?
