Now that Jimbo has indicated that he may be available for the given dates, we must move ASAP to take concrete steps to show our seriousness.
Since the Mumbai-Pune community has the highest level of preparedness, I think encouraging other cities to prepare bids for this conference, at this stage, will be counterproductive. It would be prudent to implement the structure proposed by the chapter from next year and support the Mumbai-Pune communities to pull off a successful first Wiki-conference.
