[OSGeo-Conf] FOSS4G 2016 Dublin, Ireland Full Bid Proposal

Great work by both Dublin and Bonn teams. Thanks to everyone and wishing both teams all the very best.

Just one humble suggestion, as only one team will host FOSS4G 2016, why not allow the other team to host FOSS4G-Europe in 2017 (Obviously there wont be FOSS4G-Europe in 2016 as main conference is in Europe). That way, the efforts and hardwork put in by both teams will be utilised.

Also FOSS4G-Europe is now in a strong footing with Bremen and Como conferences and it might be good to plan ideas for FOSS4G-Europe 2017. Having a longer time to plan FOSS4G 2017  will also help scale up the event if we have a great team in place now itself. 

Best wishes,

Thank you Peter and Dublin team, your proposal has been received.  It is
now visible on the RFP page[1], and I have forwarded your proposed
budget to the Conference Committee members.
