we have received two proposals for this years' LibreOffice Conference - thank you very much for your applications!

My proposal for the voting process is as follows:

- I would like to make the proposals public immediately, by uploading them to the wiki, and sending out a short notice to announce@tdf

- For the timeline of a week or so, the community can ask direct questions to the proponents, should something be unclear in their proposals

- After that, we will initiate the voting

- For voting, I propose to use a simple majority vote, i.e. the proposal having more votes will host the conference

- The candidate not succeeding this year can propose for 2013, but it will not automatically be preferred there (since we already called for 2013 proposals as well)

- Where I'm a bit undetermined is the voting scheme itself

- One option is to allow every subscriber to the announce@ lists to vote (after e-mail confirmation in the voting system itself),

- another one is to allow only TDF members to vote. The latter one would exclude "joke" votings like we have seen them in the past, but exclude many eligible people.

- A third option would be to send out a voting invitation to everyone subscribe to a set of mailing lists (e.g. discuss@, announce@ and so on), but send them a private token. That way, only active people in the project could vote, but TDF membership would not be necessary.

What do you think?
