Okay. I am not infallible, and this is an area where reasonable people can
disagree without warranting a long argument. Even more than that, I'm currently
"on hiatus" from helping for availability reasons, and this decision belongs
with the people who are currently doing the work, i.e. not me for now. Proceed
as you like. :)

I appreciate the welcome and will take you up on it in a future year. I have
too little time in the next couple of months, and I am not sure I'm
sufficiently neutral between the two options (but my slight preference will not
keep me from happily encouraging and attending either location) to want to vote
this time.

You may see me resurface in time to help with DC13 or (after the decision)
DC14, but this is a very transitional year for me at work (in a good way), so
it's harder than usual to predict these things.
