I have not known that the event is for Daffodil´s teacher and student only
(I hope I have not missed some words in chat sessions). In the preliminary
conversation with Monir, after his rough estimation of fund request, I did
suggest Monir to seek free venue which may be provided by universities or
companies. However, I hereby clarify that personally I am not supporting to
have a venue restricted to public attendance.

Also, though as a member of FAmSCo, I am not and not capable to assign
"leader" to any regional Fedora communities. Anyone should not be kept away
from participating Fedora events. If the event is not welcome to be joined
by everyone, I do not think that is a Fedora event but an internal lab
taught using Fedora as example/material. In such case, personally I think
funding from Fedora/Ambassador-group may not be appropriate.

I did have Monir as my first contact to know the progress and results of the
lab, as he stood up to take responsibilities in organize. Everyone
from Bangladesh community is the stakeholder and I am not and not capable to
permit (or not permit) anything happen. This is the Freedom among all of
you. That's why I let Monir start this thread for inputs from the community.

Monir, for the fund you requested for media production and snacks, they may
be more appropriate to be used where everyone can consume. How about holding
a Fedora event (such as FAD) the day after the lab (which all can join) and
distribute media and set up snack tables then?

Thanks for above comments, and all please feel free to express.
