True. Else paid registrants would feel bad. So we suggested we give them
some T-shirts/bags, but Fred felt it might hurt our sales of "Support
GNOME Foundation" T-shirts.

We talked about it, paid participants will get lunch coupon but the non-paid ones won't :)
So there is already a differentiation, let's stick with our plan,
and please arrange volunteers to approach 20+ schools plus all local communities to give them 30 to 50 free tickets


But we need to give the paid registrants some good goodies to carry back
home. Suggestions anyone? T-shirts are the easiest option for us, and
within budget. Other things we need to get the invoice.

We also talked about it in last irc meeting, we suggested Pins (button badges) Tshirts are rather expensive, we would rather keep some budget for next year.
Let's give away pins :)



At the same time, we should promote this conference in university, now
students can join as free. But free ticket include less than people
who paid.

                 Dear all,

                 After discussion with Bharath and Fred. We come up
                 with the following ideas:

                 We target 1000 participants, heavy promotion will be
                 started middle of this week until March 20, action by
                 the local team.

                 By March 20, if we don't have enough registration, the
                 local team is going to approach:
                 local colleges, institutes and universities directly,
                 there are around 20 of them. They will ask their
                 officials to select 30 - 50 outstanding students from
                 their colleges each to join our conference.

                 Besides, we can also consider to give a few free quota
                 to different FOSS communities to invite their core
                 team to join us as well.

                 Like this, we can definitely ensure the number of
                 quality participants :)
