Thanks for the information. I've updated
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2015_bids based on this
information.

I agree with Aya that a public posting of the scoring matrix would be great
as well.

Kind regards,
Christopher

Christopher, Aya,

Speaking as a jury member, the reason we disqualified Bali and Dar es Salaam
was that those two bids were not really complete enough to score.
