I kept your idea in mind when I did my proposal and tried a little bit
of provocation :). If I'm not completely wrong the debconf.au is some
kind of conference for the people there and if there would be someone
who would feel ignored or something else he would certainly stand up.
I think Anthony's funy answer is a kind of agreement that the people
on the third important area of high developer concentration (looking
on Edwards fine maps) agree to meet there and as long as we do not
get a huge amount of sponsoring just for traveling to conferences this
seems reasonable. I would really love to go to Australia or Japan or
whatever interesting place in Asia and I guess some other fellow
developers do so as well.
So I would suggest when the organizers of Debconf2 and some people from
Skandinavia would agree to organize a conference those to parties should
find an agreement where to meet in 2003 and where in 2004.
