I'll try to go through these today to resolve how they're being paid,
so we can arrange appropriately.
Anyone who doesn't want to be paired with another person being funded
from the same pot of money will be responsible for working out the
bill, in full knowledge that we will only be paying what we've agreed
up front. I'll make sure this is relayed to everyone on that list.
We in the FUDCon planning group don't need to book rooms for people.
We should simply tell them, "You are responsible for making sure you
and your roommate are neither single-booked, nor non-booked." :-)
Then we will pick up the appropriate tabs when people leave the hotel
on Monday and/or Tuesday as needed, in accordance with what we've
planned and communicated.
Does this sound like a sensible plan? Am I missing a problem or
