Good morning.

I feel we are stumbling over a process that must be natural and simple. We have three bids and many good ideas.

Yesterday, between the dynamism and the high participation of the users and contributors of LATAM, it was tried to decide which bid would be sent to the Council. The process, somewhat agitated, generated confusion and disorder.

However, talking to Brian and the LATAM Delegates, we find that more value would have to send the three bids to the Council in a ticket, but including a preference order.

Said order of preference will come from the result of the analysis of what happened yesterday. Neville is taking care of that and after this email, he will share what he found.

Important: Pagure Issue #370 will not be considered.

The idea is that Council has an input of what LATAM thinks about the bids and can make the best decision.

Any questions, to order.

Best regards.

Thanks Brian for your answer, I think it would be better. We'll talk with him to set the election and extend the deadline.

We held the Fudcon bids election today on IRC, however, on the election a lot of people without CLA +1 has voted it.

It's important that despite we want to host the Fudcon in our country, we have to be aware of the rules, the Fudcon host is something that should be voted by contributors, not by people outside of the project.

So, the election will be rebooted and only the people having CLA+1 will be taking into account. 

The election starts today and will be closed the next Friday.

Please, if you have CLA +1. vote here,

As we do not have a time crunch except one decided on by LATAM, I think you should consider extending you deadline slightly and asking jkurik if you could use the Fedora election system.  This would cleanly handle the cla+1 issue and provide good voting protocols.

However, I also think you should consider waiting a little bit longer until the budget has started to get resolved.  I would not like to see you select and option to propose to the council that winds up being rejected because there is a resource misalignment.

Lastly, I think it would be valuable for folks to comment on the FUDCon conversation going on in the council list to help better shape the strategy behind this event.  That will make the eventually bid package much stronger.



Athos and I we are thinking to make a system for the next time for voting in or ask to Fedora Elections system to set the Fudcon election there.

Thanks in advance.
