Frank, I think you have done the Right Thing.  Our policy on this is
sort of given in paragraph 3 of this page:

More specifically:

  * There are two kinds of conferences.  Those that
    wants to take a lead on, and those that
    wishes to take a lead on.

  * For the former, VisCom will somehow get involved and make things
    (often through a proxy agent, e.g. Arnulf).  Examples are Where 2.0

  * For the latter, VisCom will issue a Call-For-Volunteers, and then
"back away
    slowly".  VisCom will help out with getting collateral, etc, but
will not
    actually do any "organizing" per se.  Examples are that Hawaii thing
or this
    Spain thing.

Therefore, in accordance with our Policy, I will put out a CFV for the
Girona meeting to the discuss list.
