Dear DebConf Team, Please be aware that the DebConf17 bids deadline has now passed and that there are two bidders: - Prague - https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf17/Bids/Prague - Montreal - https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf17/Bids/Montreal As announced in , I have now contacted all "Current members" from  to check whether they would keep serving on the DebConf Committee. I hope to hear from them all before the end of the year . The next steps here are to schedule the two meetings according to . Given my own VAC restrictions, I would like to aim for these dates: * Bid status meeting around the Jan 9-10 week-end (ideally Saturday 9) * Venue decision meeting in the Jan 18-22 week (ideally Wednesday 20) I suggest to proceed this way: if there are blockers, for the two Bid teams or some DebConf Committee members, please voice them on the list now! We should really be able to decide on these dates before the end of this year (although, given , someone else should probably step in to actually decide on the dates). In any case, all interested parties are invited to read all the documentation put up by the Bid Teams, and ask all relevant questions on the DebConf-Team list, starting… now! Cheers, OdyX  https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf_Committee  http://lists.debconf.org/lurker/message/20151211.173344.be02ff5a.en.html  Although I'll be afk from Dec 21 to Jan 2.  https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/Bid_process#Venue_decision
