I get that as a WG in an international standards body with customers and
employees spread across the world that having a testing event outside of
the USA would be good.

However, there are significant costs for doing so, especially if equipment
heavier than laptops is involved.

I suggest amortizing travel costs to align with an IETF meeting (most of
much are no longer in the USA).

http://www.ietf.org/meeting/upcoming.html does not show Paris as future
venue, though there are several European meetings planned with TBD as the
venue.

So unless Oracle wants to host a bake-a-thon in Prague next spring, I think
we are going to Ann Arbor and Sunnyvale next year.
