The Travel Committee has received 48 sponsorship requests and we have started to processing them. It will be a bit hard, as you may guess and as you may deduce according the following tables:
|19||Speakers (not confirmed yet)|
|8||Google Summer of Code students|
|30||Members of GNOME Foundation|
|1||Applicant declined his request|
|Requests and funds (in US dollars)|
|Minimum requested:||$ 59,038.-|
|Maximum requested:||$ 61,101.-|
|Funds available for sponsoships:||$ 30,000.-|
The amount requested should be a bit higher than it is shown in the second table, because we need to get some clarification from some people. However, I am confident we could save at least $ 9,000 if we look for a different lodging than the main one recommended by the organizers.
Sooner than later we should send emails asking for more information (when it were needed). We will do our best.
