I've not seen any statement about financial support for travel to Berlin for the LibreOffice Conference. Is there a budget and process in hand for this, or are we defaulting to the published policy?
Hi Simon, thanks for bringing that up. There's an initial budget approved by the board on 2012-08-08, see http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TDF/BoD_Decisions , so far approval was on a per-request basis. FWICT there's no final, fixed budget available yet (partly because of very late sponsor signups, partly because of unclear spendings on other fronts, video recording & swag), but I think it's safe to assume that we can spend beyond this initial budget. The organizer team will finish up registration tonight, and then the plan is to mail all participants with further details - that could as well include suggestions on how & where to request travel bursaries. I hope that clears it up enough - please do follow-up with further questions, either here on board-discuss, or privately to the board, or me personally ASAP. Especially if you have unmet travel needs, or even worse, have not booked your travel yet. ;) Cheers, -- Thorsten
