Yes, but there are several reasons that make the OpenOffice case special 
here, including:

- The OpenOffice Conference admission fee in 2005-2010 never exceeded 10 
Euros, so community members did not expect this difference.

- This is the first ApacheCon for most people who used to be involved 
with the old OpenOffice project, so TAC is a relatively new concept for us.

- Apparently there are dedicated funds for travel assistance to 
OpenOffice committers.
