Regarding this RFP, I agree with you that regional events could and
should be documented here. It will take me some time/effort, but I will
start to contact regional event teams for reports, to be included in
future requests for hosting. I feel this is very important.

Excellent point. I've added the 2012 Lessons Learned wiki page, and
committed the document to SVN.
- added the 2014 report from Darrell (and mentioned that he has shared
with me a short financial report as well, and that I can be contacted to
share privately). I will forward that privately to the OSGeo Board now
- fixed copy/paste error in Stage1 of doc, reported by Till
Committed in SVN.
