(for the record, because there seems to be some confusion: I think it would be good to have clearity on the timeline, but I don't agree that there is an urgency to announce the jury soon - if the quality of the jury is improved by waiting a bit because we're short of candidates or any other random reason, I'm all for taking a little extra time.)

Nah, lets not wind ourselves up unnecessarily. There is still plenty of time - as long as the winners are known around june/july. A full year should be enough to organize a Wikimania.

I was a bit distracted for the last two weeks and my last status was
James' call for bids and jury members.

discussion derailed a bit stating that the timeline is already quite
tense. While that's true it didn't help us getting to work ;-)

I know that James sent a few mails to potential jury members. My
suggestion is that he puts the names of those who agreed here:

Then we may have a short discussion / selection, define the actual jury
by the end of next week and then get things finally rolling.
