I really meant that the RFP will go out once we receive the short report
from the 2014 committee, to include in the Appendix; I just now
re-pinged the local committee about this, I am sure they will do soon.
Regarding recording the process on a website, I have updated the usual
RFP section with the Important Dates for 2016:
Will keep you all uptodate on the Appendix status, and once that is
ready I will ask here for the approval to go ahead with the announcement

The OSGeo Conference Committee (that I am not a member of) will of course be responsible for voting for 2016, and then take that result to the OSGeo Board (nothing has changed there).
