Subject [PROPOSAL] Fund Allocation for ApacheCon EU 2012, Germany in Nov. 2012
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 11:57:08 GMT

I have learned that the following discussion/proposal should to be on ooo-dev 
instead of ooo-private.

A summary for the background:
AOO has some money from the pre-Apache time (the SPI fund) which we (AOO 
community) can spend for our project. There was a discussion on ooo-private to 
use some of this money for the ApacheCon EU 2012, Germany in Nov. 2012.
A small discussion took place and more or less ended in the below proposal which 
I had made:

Here is my proposal for fund allocation for ApacheCon EU 2012, Germany in Nov. 
2012; more or less a summary of the former discussion of this topic.

- 10 x 300 EUR flat subsidies for travel expenses; double the subsidy for cases 
of hardship, e.g. persons who need to take a long flight.
-- criteria for granting subsidy:
(a) preference order: invited speakers, committers, non-committers
(b) person lacks of corporate funding and TAC funding
(c) person needs to spend at least 300 EUR on travel
(d) person need accommodation for at least 2 nights

- 30 x 100 EUR ticket discount for non-committers
-- criteria for granting discount:
(a) person lacks of corporate funding and TAC funding

A small group of volunteers are needed to drive the granting process:
- define application form and deadlines
- run the application process
- accept/reject the applications

I am volunteering to be part of this small group.
Who else is joining?

If nobody objects in the next 72 hours, I will put the proposal into practice.

Best regards, Oliver.
