I doubt there is much choice since it has to be one of the locations of
the people involved. Also I'd not really plan on a case where we need to
involve the law, hardly anyone of us has that kind of money to waste,
and due to tax reasons I don't think we really want to involve any
really big amounts of money...
But I think if we want this we should maybe ask some of those who have
done such stuff at LinuxTag, e.g. KDE (at least for donations, no idea
if they did bounties, too).
