A few updates on the upcoming FUDCon in Blacksburg, VA in January 2012:
* We will be having our second subsidy meeting on Wednesday, November
23rd. This meeting will be for evaluating and processing any available
subsidy monies for international attendees, as well as processing any
new North America-based subsidy requests. If you are requesting a
subsidy, please ensure that your Trac ticket for requesting subsidies is
complete, particularly and especially with detail to what you plan to
accomplish / do while at FUDCon. With more than ten international
requests, and limited funding, it is especially important for the people
attending the meeting to have a clear picture of your plans in order to
make a decision on funding.
The subsidy meeting is open for anyone to attend. Please feel free to
participate, especially if you have requested funding, so that we may
ask questions and get answers in a timely manner. The meeting occurs
this Wednesday (during the normal FUDCon planning meeting time) at 17:00
UTC in #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net
(9am Pacific, Noon Eastern).
