In addition to GNOME folks willing to host (yeah, Sri!) there is also a

This is true.  Portland has a very large presence of many open source based
start ups as well as established companies like Intel and IBM who have open
source teams.  Intel for instance has all their Xorg hackers here.  We have
some Red Hatters, people who work on filesystems, and many kernel folks.

So you'll have a large community to interact with.  I'm well known in the
Portland open source community as I manage our "beerings".  In fact it was
from the beerings that Linux Plumbers Conference was born.

I also have access to an events coordinator as well as my old plumbers team
to ask for advice.  I dont know mucha bout the logistics - how many people
generally come?

Boston Summit is between hackfest and unconference.  It is about 35-50

One of the benefits of Boston is that MIT traditionally had lent the
venue for free during Columbus Day.

You can get an idea from the old wiki pages:
