Hi Mohan

Please if you reply to the digest, don't quote the entire message in
your reply. The reason this got held for moderation was because the
message was so large.

I disagree with your proposal, I don't think one persons vote should
count less than another, just because of where they live, that seems
totally unfair to me. People attend conferences, not countries.

I also disagree this was ever adopted, certainly it's not something I
would agree to.

I think if there is a fear that one country will host Kohacon every
year (even though that has not happened before) it would be fair to
have a rule that the same country can not host a conference within 3
years (or some time period).

What the vote is for, is "Where would you like to most attend
Kohacon11?" I would hope that those who have bid for 2011 are also
planning to build for 2012 also.

Just my 2 cents

Back to merging patches for the 3.4 release I go
