Hi all,

In my Cologne-biased opinion, I agree that it's a city very central 
within (western) Europe and is easily reached by plane/train/automobile 
for a *lot* of people.
But I can also understand that Berlin is also a very well-served 
destination, and is presumably a cheaper place for people to stay, and 
it may well have the largest software dev population in Germany (as for 
*Jenkins user count*, I have no idea).

But I think so long as we're talking about a European Jenkins 
conference, i.e. it's not being marketed as Germany-specific, then I 
think the city itself shouldn't be a big issue.  I can think of people 
working in the UK and Ireland, for example, who would likely travel to 
an easily-reachable city for a good Jenkins user conference.
