Hi Paolo

during the last ESUg board meeting we discussed (post mortem conference analysis and yearly assessment)
 and arrived to the same conclusion.


> Janko, I don't think that anyone has any doubt about that.  The number of proposals is obviously influenced by the popularity of dialects, but I'm 101% sure that prospective mentors are going to vote for them according to the value of the proposal and not the chosen dialect.
> I also don't see the point of investing so much into your own selection system.  Google's is "interesting" in some cases, but it's gotten better and better every year.  You're free of course to do what you want as the org admin, but I think the choice can only make things more confusing.
