In the Council meeting this week, we noted that Flock lands in late
August/early September and this is high tourist season in Europe. It
is also a time when many take vacation. This drives prices up across
many of the regions.
We wondered aloud if we could shift Flock to dates outside of this
window. The two most likely alternatives would be sometime in July or
sometime in November. We also noted that we should try and avoid
conflicting with any other major open source conference, and that July
and November seem to fit within that small goal. There are pros and
cons with each date window, but we wanted to see how feasible people
thought this would be.
