Thanks for your notes of the meeting.

"Rest of World years should target a minimum of a break with a lower 
expectation of the share of surplus being returned to OSGeo. A larger 
share of any surplus should be reinvested into local OSGeo activities."

Regarding the note above, such special arrangement should apply
only when FOSS4G is organized in/by communities of the
Low or Lower-Middle Income Economies as defined by the World Bank and 
WHO [1]. Cost of living and PPP [2] is considerable different in
Low or Lower-Middle Income Economies and thereby the conference fee
could be considerably lower.

FOSS4G-2015 in Seoul adopted a special pricing for participants for
Low or Lower-Middle Income Economies, which could be adopted in future

"Rest of the World" would surely not include high income countries 
listed in [1], I think.
