I just posted this comment:
In general this sounds like a positive idea.
My one concern from the perspective of a host/organizer is that by picking a
firm date based on the timing of another event, it may really limit the
ability of a place like BU to be able to continue hosting FUDCon. If there
is no flexibility in the dates, there will be a possibility that we might
not be able to host it at all if there happens to be some scheduling
conflict on our end. A bit of flexibility always helps with that. That said,
we managed to do it in conjunction with LinuxWorld for two years, though the
2005 FUDCon suffered a bit as a result of that constraint.
Regarding the comment about Brazil and the rest of the world, I assume that
this proposal does not exclude the possibility of other FUDCon events. It's
just an attempt to formally plan for a couple big ones each year.
