We no longer use a bid process for Flock
If you are looking for historical context see the edit history.

The Flock site selection process, as approved by the Fedora Council, is:

  1. Fedora Council decides on a general region.
  2. Events team comes back with several possibilities in that region.
  3. We get community feedback on ability to attend and excitment for each of those, and return a ranked list to events team.
  4. Fedora Council and events team pick final location.
  5. Community people in or around that location who are able and willing to volunteer to help with logistics, finding awesome evening events, etc., are absolutely invited to work together.
  6. Awesome Flock conference!
