Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by pranvk.

Please set the "Component" below to the correct event for your request.

Tell us the following:

  • What do you need covered?
    hotel + travel = 200$

  • If we cannot provide a full subsidy, will a partial subsidy be helpful?
    Yes

  • If Yes, specify the minimum amount you need covered to facilitate your attendance.
    150$

  • What will you accomplish by being at FUDCon? (Please be as specific as possible, since this is the most important factor in granting requests.)

I will get the desired exposure by meeting and interacting with hackers all around the world. I have been doing package reviews for few months, and further plan to contribute to fedora; attending the event will make me acquainted with more fedora contributors and what they are and have been doing to make fedora better. This would help me to involve myself more into the community.

I have also submitted my talk and hopefully I will be speaking at fudcon.

  • If you are requesting airfare, include complete flight information such as flight numbers, desired departure and arrival airports, and times. Also let us know if you have specific time restrictions.
    DEL -> PNQ : AI-851, Desired departure : 26 June, 5:00 AM
    PNQ -> DEL : 6E-304, Desired departure : 29 June, 7:40 AM

Time restrictions departing Delhi : Anytime in the morning so as I make in time to FudCon on 26th. I cannot sacrifice my work by coming on 25th June.
Time restrictions departing Pune : Anytime in the morning on Monday - 29 June, so as I can get back to work in Delhi in time.

  • Do you need a visa or other official processing before you can attend FUDCon? If so, approximately how long does that processing take?
    No, I don't need a visa.

  • Include any additional, relevant information.

I have been doing package reviews for several months now and hope to become a fedora packager soon. I further wish to contribute to fedora in all possible ways that interests me in technical domain.


Just realized that I forgot mentioning that I have been contributing actively to GNOME, and is also a GNOME Foundation member.

Besides that few contributions to Mozilla and libreoffice too.

Thanks for the sponsorship. I would also like to ask about the meal. Does the sponsored stay mean a sponsored meal or do one have to arrange that for himself on his own ?

The hotel has complimentary breakfast, but you'll have to manage your lunch and dinner.

I have just been sponsored into packager group. Is there any chance that you could reconsider my travel sponsorship, as I am a student, which makes it harder for me, and a fedora packager now ? Even a partial travel sponsorship would do.

Hello Pranav,

Your request for the partial travel subsidy has been accepted for maximum of 70/- USD.[1] Please go ahead and book your tickets and attach it to this request. We will reimburse the same after the conference. Please ensure to retain your boarding passes/tickets, as we will need those for reimbursement.

...see you at FUDCon! :)

Is it okay if I leave at 8 PM on 29th June ? Or do I have to leave before normal checkout time for most hotels (12 noon) on 29th June ?

Early reply would be helpful as I need to book the tickets.

I have booked the tickets. I will arriving 7:30 PM on 25 June, and leaving 8:00 PM on 29th of June. I plan to checkout from the hotel early in the morning, so above mentioned issue (above comment) won't be a problem.

And just to confirm again, that $70 (or maybe more in future[1]) is apart from the accomodation you would be providing, right ?
