Aha, was this more in reference to the text of the CfH? In that case, it's a
minor disconnect between norms of each organisation and conference, not well
expressed in the CfH (I don't think anyone noticed it).

Speaking only for myself, not for either organisation involved in the CfH...
It would take a lot to convince me that we should hold GUADEC outside Europe
even if we had a neat GUADEC+Akademy proposal for somewhere else.

And I say that as someone who is not particularly close to Europe (let alone
anywhere else on the planet I guess). ;-)
