[OSGeo-Conf] Conference Committee Guidelines

I think I have run out of energy/enthusiasm to chair the CC. I will remain a member of the CC until there is a revised policy on rotation of members and it is my turn to stand down
It’s up to the CC to decide whether to appoint another chairman or whether they can proceed without a chair. If our sole activity is the annual FOSS4G selection it arguably doesn’t need a chair.

>>> There is a wiki page here https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Committee_Guidelines that provides more information (and helpfully provides guidance for committee chairs). There are some examples of different committees doing their thing here (https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Committee_Guidelines#Examples).
