#96 Funding for OLPC Basecamp 2013
Closed: Invalid None Opened 9 years ago by snavin.

I will attend the OLPC Basecamp 2013, Malacca event to be held in Malasia from 16th to 17th of November 2013.

This event is a gathering of volunteers, educators, students, developers, etc of APAC region.

I am suppose to conduct four sessions and two sessions will be 'How to package Sugar Activities for Fedora' and ' Sugar on your Fedora box'. These topics will encourage people to use Fedora and also contribute back to the project as package maintainers.

I need sponsoring for travel and accommodation. I will travel from Singapore to Malaysia with group of people by VAN and return. Hotel facilities will use from 15th (night) Friday November 2013. and checkout on 17th Sunday November 2013.

Really sorry for the late notice. And I will update the estimated budget ASAP.

Event blog:

It is a nice event. Thank you for presenting for Fedora there.

It is a bit late; you should open for this such request at least 2 weeks before the event so please do not expect it could be completed processing before the event (if it does, it will be cool)

Also, please let us know how much you would like Fedora to support for your participation.

Although it is not in FY2014 budget plan, I personally think we can arrange for it (especially, if the requested fund is not much).


I know its too late even I could not book on time and I missed the chance of staying at the place where we host the event.

Travel 150.00SGD (shared VAN, two way)
Accommodation 167.04SGD (144 for two days, added 10% of Service change ad of 6% of TAX)

Hello snavin,

According to APAC reimbursement rules [1], this ticket needs to be approved by regional ambassadors in a meeting.
You should also attend the next APAC meeting to answer questions, if any.

Btw, the booking shows that you booked a triple room. You shared it with others?
So, just needs to reimburse 1/3 of that amount, right?

Hi Tuanta,

I could not find a single bed room. This was happened to several basecamp attendees. (as I heard school vacation started on that day, but I am not sure if this was the reason.). Once I booked I decided to let you know guys thats why I pass the booking information to this ticket.

I did not shared with any one as all of the people already shared. And some one from Fedora Malaysia community can be verify from the hotel.

Danishka, what is the actual cost you would like to request for reimbursement?
And how about event reports and photos?

Hi everyone, I'm trying to clean up the trac. It seems like it's been seven months since updates on this ticket - can it be closed if the reimbursement decision and process is over?

There is no response for a long time. The requester have not followed reimbursement process to post report, photos, etc. so it should be closed without a properly reimbursement.

If you believe that there is a mistake here, you can re-open it to continue the discussion.
