Re: GNOME Travel Committee & Travel Policy: A proposal for consideration and feedback


I think the 200 € was intended to apply to GUADEC. GUADEC is most of our travel money. But it could be set on a case by case and could even be lowered or waived on a case-by-case basis. (If we adopt it.)

And do you also plan to request the 200 € participation for GUADEC? That
would most probably leave many students without the opportunity to
participate. I expect this rule not to apply for GUADEC, specially since
the next one is already in a extremely touristic and therefore expensive
