I don't plan to organize any VDD '10 at all. I don't have the time to
start organizing it before GSoC summit, (OWF and OVC are some of the
reasons), which means I cannot do it before mid-december.
My plan is to organize VDDx3 early next year, to celebrate VLC's 10
years of open source.

We have the money.

Or after Xmas :D

The Paris region is good not for budget, but because it is simpler for
me to organize it.

Anyone could. But who wants? This is boring business...
