Not going to Debconf8

(1 comment)

With the cost of plane tickets approaching 2000 USD it is rather hard to sell me going to the Debconf 8 as that can be approximated as 3-4 months of my income. I did apply for travel sponsorship, but due to some kind of brainfart I misread "Amount I am unable to fund myself" as "Amount I am able to fund myself" and thus asked for far less money than I actually need. Therefore, after the Debconf team strictly stated that the requested amount can not be changed at this point, it has become clear that I cann't come to Debconf 8.

I would still love to come if there was sponsorship money to cover my fare and even suggested putting me to the end of the sponsorship priority list, but apparently that is not happening. Have fun, and see you all in Spain in 2009.

Even moving to the end of the queue would not be good for you... AFAIK, this time there is _no_ money yet for this. Of course, I do hope there will be ;-) But I don't think there will be money to cover all of the queue...
