I'm not sure you understood it well. I want to be bidding, but
unfortunately I do realise Brasil is prepared much better, and they
have a much bigger team (mine is at the moment just myself plus a few
people who promised to help but haven't really helped yet) and even
though I probably might have managed to do it if Bratislava was the
only bid, I don't want to pretend my bid is better at the moment. I
still want to have DebConf in Bratislava, I just am realistic that it
won't happen in 2019. I still want feedback so that I can improve my
bid before the next year's bidding process so that we can actually
host DebConf in 2020.
