It looks like this is shaping up to be quite an event!
The dates on the wiki page still seem very open, but you mention mid-March.
Can we be more precise with the dates that are being considered? March is
already not that far away and it would help to have a tighter window for us to
start pitching this to mgmt.
As for the lodging, all these ski chalets sounds wonderful. The only thing I
would suggest is that, given the nature of this work to be done (sounds to
me like probably more debating than coding, necessarily) it will be crucial
to have a big meeting space and a projector so that people can make
presentations to the group as a whole.
It is great to see CampToCamp stepping forward to organize this event, I
think it will be a great opportunity to get some good work done.
ps. I'll forward the original post to the users@ and dev@ lists for openlayers

place to achieve better work on this major release!).
The cost of the stay (travel expenses excluded) is about 750 € per
person. As organizers, we want to cover all incurred expenses during the
event as well as the maximum of travel expenses i.e. a budget of about
10'000 € for 6 persons. Only the time spent at the event would then be
at the charge of the developers (and/or their respective
