Yes. We're fairly sure that very few GIMP developers will attend a LGM
in Vietnam (distance and politics), some more in Brazil (distance) and
probably a few more in Montreal, although some may decide to skip a LGM
that's held at a familiar place for the third time.

The difficult part is that it's almost a year till the next LGM. Nobody
can yet tell for sure if they'll be able to attend.

I'd like to see it extended on future LGM plans as well - i.e don't wait
until after LGM 2011 to decide about 2012. Knowing where the next few
meetings might be can help a lot if you know that you'll skip one for

My personal preference would be Brazil - Vietnam - Montreal; without any
really strong opinion for or against any of them.

The guidelines are useful. There outline exactly why each item is
important for the organizers, without being rules for rules sake.

Two years. Especially for people who have to save up for travel and
accommodation (even if reimbursed, you'll have to cope with less money
for some time), it is very helpful to know that a next LGM may be closer
to one's location.
