Out of curiosity, why is this bid specific?
It's explained in the "crucial for the success of this Wikimania plan"
passage and in several other places in the bid, where it's pointed out
that Wikimania needs to be looked at as a whole.
I think it would be much
more valuable if we can have this discussion independent of the bid.
These values and goals should be similar independent of the location.
Even the members of the committee should be mostly independent of the
location I think.
We don't propose to change the (process of) composition of the
committee; the bid only includes a proposed coordinator/point of contact
with the local organising team, as per handbook/practice (that is me).
We're just telling you one or two years in advance what we plan to do
with that. :)
