tbf, i think its logical to have the physical location on the place around 
where most of the board members live. on the wiki it seemed not to specify 
exactly _that_ location, i suspect if somehow, there's a totally diff group of 
board members over time (which i really doubt, it would be bad for continuity 
for the project), they would simply choose another place.
