Is there any place where we can provide input on considerations that
could be important for finalizing the date? It would be great not to
demoralize the planners by not giving input in time. Some
considerations I had in mind:
* Potential release dates for F21
(I've heard "not before August," but if it's in August then an
August 8-11 date at least might be crazy)
I'd say - not before *the end* of August, the last month before release
is always challenging. And it will be always hard to align Flock with
One thing is - we don't know now, if F21 will follow old or new model,
what I'd really like to is one bigger Fedora event before we choose
the way but summer time is not a best date for this.
One local collision early September is Akademy, that's going to be
held in Brno - 6-12 September.
* Any colliding conferences or events we want to schedule around
(I'd love to see some folks around Flock who couldn't make it last
year due to GUADEC)
* The fiscal quarter at Red Hat which can affect our planning for
funds -- note that we are in the midst of planning budget right now
for FY 2015 (March 2014 - February 2015), so this could be critical
* Summer plans for those in EU, which are very important to many
contributors both with and without families :-)
That's actually the reason why Akademy was moved to post summer dates
and if we want summer event, we have to live with that and do the
decision on final date as soon as possible, to allow planning in
