It's easiest for us to organize around Raleigh and Boston because Red 
Hat has giant operations near there, and it can make things like venues 
quite inexpensive (or maybe even free).

I think it would be a completely reasonable goal to say that the Fedora 
9 hackfest is in some "western US" location, but given the time that we 
have to get it organized, and with the main organizational work falling 
on Greg DeKoenigsberg and myself for the Fedora 8 event, I'm afraid 
we're going to need to stick with Raleigh this time.

Also, for the few folks that come in from Europe, at least the East 
Coast spares them an extra several hours of travel.

But point taken.
