At the moment I can see 4 statements or votes in favour of Maxi being included on the conference committee (Venka, Eli, Cameron and Dave P) and one rains some reservations (Till).
No one else has expressed an opinion.
Maxi, welcome to the Conference Committee. Would you update your details on the conference committee page of the wiki.
A couple of people have raised the topic of whether membership of the conference committee is synonymous with eligibility to vote in the FOSS4G selection process. I intend to add this to my list of topics for the conference committee to consider over the next couple of months.
