== Additional information ==
I want to attend Nullcon 2017 since it would be my first time represeting Fedora as an ambssador at an event and also to help set up the fedora booth. Attending Nullcon will give me the opportunity to meet other ambassadors in person and share my plans and projects for the coming year, and also to discuss with them how to effectively contribute to the Fedora community.

I strongly support this ticket - Fabian Affolter and i will be at this conference and meet Chokden - it will be a good opportunity to discuss the progress and future activities for the tibetan Community and would spare us a costly trip to Dharamsala - which was sponsored by other entities than Fedora the last time.

We also will join forces with other Fedora Ambassadors from India who will be at the conference in their role with RedHat (Prasad,Rupali?)

We work together since a couple of years and Chokden talked about his activities on the last last fudcon in Pune.


According to APAC Reimbursement guidelines [1], this ticket needs to be approved by a FAmSCo member, CC holder or a person approved by CC holder.

Since there is no APAC person elected in this FAmSCo term (correct me if I am wrong), you need to wait for @izhar (APAC CC holder) to process this.
Otherwise, you need to wait to the next APAC meeting (IIRC, next Friday)

thanks tuanta for the clarification - one remark, you know that i processed the APAC reimbursements for quite a while - if izhar can confirm there is 219$ USD left in the budget i could take care for the reimbursement.

With the new reporting introduced by bex we can make sure it is reported in the right way


as of now we only used up roughly USD6000 for FY17, so we should have budget left from planned USD11500

Yes, we have about 200 USD allocated for nullCon.

As Izhar mentioned, we have many $$$$ left, so we should sponsor tenchokden for this ticket.

@Izhar: I think you need to approve this one?

as budget is available and multiple supporters stepped up - i approve this ticket on peer-review basis as a community credit card holder

I am really sorry for updating the ticket after a long time, I had series of unfortunate events after the nullcon. I lost my phone which had all my refund bills pictures and I did not know until today that I had a back up in itunes. I had a car accident from hotel to Goa airport which led me to miss my flight and hence the huge margin in the flight price. I request for refund on old bill which i will upload as soon as i get it from the airlines. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience caused @izhar @jsimon .

@izhar If you tend to approve this request, please add a approved tag.

reimbursed 485,21 USD for 31369 INR - ticket can be closed

I have a lot of complaints for this ticket.
Firstly, as mentioned in APAC process,

$300-1000 USD = The request requires approval from the appropriate regional community (APAC, EMEA, LATAM, or NA)
   At least five (5) individual FAm votes required at APAC FAm Bi-Weekly meeting

I don't see any meeting results for this, neither anyone voting on this ticket.
I also even don't see izhar officially approve the ticket.
I checked the air ticket provided in this request, as well as NullCon website, it shows that it happens in FY2018 instead of FY 2017.

Conference: 3rd - 4th Mar 2017

So based on the time, I see Izhar and kushal's comment invalid since they are commenting for FY2017 not for FY2018.
And how come a request get reimbursed without a approved tag?
Are we still following APAC guideline?

I'm closing this ticket since it's done and not handled by APAC.

I've moved this charge to FY18. The full explanation is in the commit message below. As APAC has spent no money so far this year, I don't believe this will cause a problem. If APAC runs out of money, we can discuss finding a way to fix this.

Moving nullcon txn from FY17 to FY18

This expense was paid with FY18 money

Even though the event occurred in FY17, FY17 closed on 28 Feb 2018

ANY CHARGES occuring after that time are FY18 costs.

In the future, please work with the FCAIC in these situations as
we may be able to get the costs to land in the correct year.
