Right. There. There is one thing I learnt for my whole life when I organized DebConf6. Those that were around back then will surely back me on this: Don't push a bid if you are not _CERTAIN_ you have a good team with whom you can _really_ share the load. It is not impossible to put up a DebConf mostly by yourself. But, believe me, you don't want to do it. Do you really want to end up with a face as mine? A good place to hold the conferences and to have hacklabs is very important. Good accomodation is quite important. Nice good food cannot be overlooked. But... If you don't have a good team that shares a vision and can work together, you won't get anywhere. Work on that before anything else. > 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.

We should go back to Europe soon, it makes sense in so many ways. But Brazil does indeed have a mature, strong bid. So, I hope you can do it in 2020. Talk with people from nearby cities, even if not from your "local" team. Talk with us (debconf-team). We will provide comments and help along the way even if you are not a formal bid, and even if it's mid-year.
