Thank you for applying. We have sponsored your travel and stay. You can find the details at http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fudcon-planning/2011-08-26/fudcon_pune.2011-08-26-13.02.html. Let us know what time you are arriving and leaving so that we can book the hotel room for you

Have you booked your ticket yet? Please update the ticket with the pdf copy of your ticket

I have not booked it yet because I was not sure of my location. I'll book by this weekend and update with the pdf.


At the time of filing the ticket, I was on the lookout for a job and so filed a ticket with the travelling details from the most likely place I thought I'd be during Nov'11.
But, recently I got a job in Bangalore and this is my current location. So, my travelling cost will be an overshot from the original amount (~20$) requested by me. It will be around ~5,000 INR.

Thus, I request you to kindly look into the possibility of sponsoring the costs. I know the event budget is limited and this request comes at a really late time. I wouldn't have asked for this, but at present my finances are extremely limited, moving to a new city altogether taking a huge toll.


Approved Rs. 5000 for travel directly to Pune. Please book tickets ASAP and attach them here.

Booked flights. Have attached flight details and the invoice.
