[OSGeo-Conf] FOSS4G 2018 Decision Time

I don't need discussion time.

I prefer a vote with two options and would like “No to Dar es Salaam”
included as an option (or just change the question to "Should the
Conference Committee award FOSS4G 2018 to Dar es Salaam?" Yes/No).  I
guess I'm a stickler for formality which brings some bureaucracy.

For whoever is going to run this vote, we might want to have a quick
list discussion to see that we're all on the same page for how it will

Best regards, Eli
