There is some flexibility in the process year-on-year. This is how we're
doing it this year. I'm hoping that next year we'll have at least two
strong bids, we might have to do some better marketing at DebConf to
lure^Wentice more people into proposing bids.

As far as I'm concerned, we have a sufficient understanding of where the
bid teams stand in order to have a productive meeting and a high
likelihood of reaching a consensus/conclusion on who should host DebConf19.
Even though Bratislava is really gunning for DC20, and even though it's
more or less a dry run for their actual bid, it is also valuable to
assess their current readiness in the (unlikely) event that the Curitiba
bid doesn't work out.
