Subject New TAC-mode for all Apache Committers: Applications open for FOSDEM 2020
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2019 13:56:06 GMT
Hi all,

perhaps some of you have missed this information so I would like to promote this again in
the communities I’m involved in.

Apache has setup some completely new funds for making it possible for Apache committers to
travel to non-Apache open-source events.
In this case we are sponsoring trips to Fosdem 2020.

This invitation concentrates on anyone not requiring a Visa to go there as we won’t be able
to sponsor people which require Visas.
Applications are greatly simplified and in general the rules have been loosened.
So in general every Apache committer can apply once a year for a conference on the same continent.

So if not being able to afford the trip is preventing you from going to Brussels next year:
Please consider applying for TAC.

As part of TACs mission to support ASF related events other than ApacheCon, we are opening
applications for 'committers' only to apply for Travel and/or Hotel Accommodation assistance

This is a free entry event; and as such with TACs help, you can apply to have Travel and/or
paid for to enable people to go who otherwise could not afford to attend.

As is usual with TAC assistance, you will be required to help out at the event to help pay
back our
investment in getting you there. Things like helping staff the ASF booth, handing out stickers
to other attendees and generally evangelise and talk to others about what it is to be involved
in the
ASF as a Committer on a project.

You will be required to arrive on the 31st January 2020, in order to have a pre-event meeting
attend a welcome dinner, where we will go through what is expected of you during the event
You may also expect to leave on the 3rd February depending on return travel arrangements.

At present, we will only be accepting applications from those geographically close to the
Due to this being a third party event, we are not able to provide visa assistance for attendees,
and so will only be accepting TAC applications from people with a passport from one of the
countries that are either within the European Union or have a visa-waiver agreement with the

As the event is not that far away now, applications are open now! And will close on the 3rd
at midnight UTC, so you haven't got long to apply!

Thanks, and good luck to all those that apply, hope to see you at Fosdem!

Apply now at<> .
