We did try to do this--actually the other bid was to do it in Strasbourg
after GUADEC, but the university wasn't able to accommodate us, and we
didn't find an alternate space. We're trying to accommodate everyone's date
preferences, which obviously is impossible. The current hitch is available
days at the university. We should know for certain very soon, but it should
be within that week after GUADEC.

It would be great if Flock was compatible with GUADEC for travel from the
US, and Saturday, August 2 to Tuesday, August 5 would be ideal for that.
GUADEC usually has several days of talks followed by several days of birds
of feather sessions and hackfests. The Red Hat team meeting usually takes
place during these final days, not afterwards. With GUADEC scheduled
Saturday, July 26 to Friday, August 1, it would not be a big deal for
people interested in attending Flock to travel in the afternoon of August
1. On the other hand, capturing both weekend days would be helpful to Flock
in attracting hobbyist attendees.
I looked into travel options for Strasbourg to Prague to make sure this
trip can be accomplished on Friday afternoon. Both itineraries I found are
significantly cheaper if booked as round-trips. There is one direct flight
for $276. As far as non-direct options available, in seems best to take a
bus to Frankfurt operated by Lufthansa and a flight from there to Prague
for $240. The bus can be booked as part of the flight itinerary or on its
own. The information about the bus is at
