Thank you to the Bonn and Dublin teams for submitting a Letter of
Interest to host FOSS4G 2016.
The next step is for the OSGeo Conference Committee members to each
review the letters, and ask questions to the local committees, here
on this mailing list. (the question period will run until 2015-01-18)
After that, the OSGeo Conference Committee will choose if the local
committees should proceed to the next step, a full proposal. That
decision (to advance to the proposal stage) will come on 2015-01-19.
As for analyzing the number of submissions, throughout the years there
have been instances of one bid only, so having two energetic bids is
very exciting, and I personally thank the two teams for their initial
preparations and discussions already.
