#219: Funding request for Andreas Thienemann
 Reporter:  ixs                |       Owner:  sundaram
     Type:  Funding request    |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal             |   Milestone:          
Component:  FUDCon India 2011  |    Keywords:          

 during FrOSCon 2011 I did a small talk about Func and how it is being used
 at Booking.com, a fast growing hotel website with a four digit number of
 servers all running pure open source software. This was a very impromptu
 talk as the original speaker had to decline on short notice.

 The content however was very well received and people suggested, that I
 should flesh this out a bit and maybe repeat this at the India FudCon.

 As FrOSCon only was very recently, I apologize for the late sponsorship

 My aims for this FudCon would therefore be to

  * Promote Func as it is indeed a wonderful tool for controlling more than
 one machine
  * Host a hacksession on Func.

 There are some features (e.g. delegation) which are _very_ rough in Func.
 We (at Booking) have a quickly hacked up version of func which actually
 fixes many issues we see in a large scale environment with timeouts etc.
 Polishing it and submitting/applying it upstream would definitly be worth

 Of there is some interest, I am also happy to host a session talking about
 Fedora/CentOS/RHEL in a larger scale environment, what challenges/issues
 we face, how we solved them, what kind of best practices we found etc.

  * What do you need covered? Hotel 200USD, Flight 1300USD seems to be
 what's available on the market. Departure airport would be Amsterdam. I
 only did a quick search as Jared stressed I should get this ticket in
 quickly. Will do a more exhaustive search later.
  * If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful?
 Yes, I'll take whatever I can and then see if it works out.
  * What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? Please see above.
  * Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend
 FUDCon? Visa applications by European citizens seem to be processed in
 less than a month.

 If you have any further questions, please do not hestitate to ask me
 either via mail or on IRC. The nick is ixs.
