I really feel like three (or four) regional events aren't, in total, as
valuable as a global one. (Just as a Flock that brings people from EMEA
and NA together every year is better than having a double-sized FUDCon
in each region every other year.)

I know, though, that gobal travel is very expensive. I'd love to hear
people's ideas. What do you (and everyone) think about rolling APAC and
LATAM FUDCons in too? Maybe even rotating between all four regions?

Then, maybe we _do_ spend a little more on social events for
contributors in the other regions durning the years where Flock isn't
there, as bonding time for contributors who can't make the trip. And,
for user outreach, focus on non-Fedora-centric events combined with a
new meetup strategy.
