Re: Call for invitations to be the host of GUADEC 2008

I think we should in general encourage people who think they are located
in a place that make it feasible for people in west Europe and the  US
to go there to apply to host GUADEC. Even if they are not in Europe per
se. For instance I it struck me that Morocco could be a good alternative
when I was there, as its cheap in terms of food and lodging, yet
reasonably well connected with cheap flights (EasyJet flies to Marrakesh
from both London and Madrid for example). I am sure places like Egypt,
Israel, non-European parts of Turkey and Russia have similar setups.
Of course even within 'Europe' we have kept things quite far to the west
so far so there is for sure opportunities for a spread of applicants
even with that constraint in place.
