I am not talking at the event, but it would be nice to have a Fedora representative there: this has the potential to be a great low level software development event with dozens of contributors of important upstream projects, such as the kernel.

When? Saturday, November 11, 2017

Where? Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP)

What am I requesting? Funding for bus tickets + Event fee + 1 night hotel (the hotel is for 2)

Who? Athos and Siqueira (USP student I have been mentoring)

How much am I asking?

Bus tickets = R$70.00;
Event fee (student) = R$25.00 + R$2.00 (purchase fee);
1 night hotel = R$195.00

Sum = R$292.00 = $89.69 as per oanda

Paypal fees, as per LATAM guidelines = $6.73

Total = $96.42

It is curious to see a fpo mail adress used for a paypal account, most of
us use the mail alias for mailing list subcriptions

I have more than one paypal account. I use this one for Fedora project related stuff only, so I will not mix my wallets.

I do not use my fp.o alias for mailing lists at all. I use it for git, interactions with upstreams on packaging activities, and as a contact point whenever I am talking to someone as a project contributor.

I do not see the point on your comment though. Would you like elaborate?

@potty should I assign this to you, set a reimbursement tag or just wait? Not sure how this has been done lately :)

@potty @bex ^

Not sure what the next step here is anymore :)

This should be assigned to be paid by me. For Brazil we have been using Transferwise, iirc to send actually BRL. If this is good for you, let me know. Otherwise we can use paypal. I will wait for your answer.

It is not a problem for me. I never used Transferwise before though. Is giving you an IBAN code enough? If so, is it OK to email it to you?

EDITED

All I need is your full name as it appears on your account and your email address. Transferwise.com will email you for the rest of your details.

Oops, just sent you all the information

This has been paid.
