Personally I think it would be best to piggy-back on an existing event
given that the organizers wouldn't mind, of course. This would give us
the benefit of an existing infrastructure.

20-30 people sounds right to me. We need a conference room or similar
(the GimpTent at GIMPCon 2003 wasn't exactly a conference room, but it
filled our need perfectly) and access to the internet. Of course we need
a place/places to sleep as well, but anything from a tent to a hotel
would fit this need.

It would be ideal if The GIMP Foundation was a reality when we start the
fund-raising. We could then use the conference to evaluate the steps
taken to raise funds - and perhaps improve the process.

I agree. I would say late June, July or early August.
