Hi Kat,

Yes, there are additional funds for hackfests this year as long as they meet
certain criteria.

@Neil and Carlos -- would you be able to jump on a call with the travel
committee and explain or else write it out here?

@Kat -- do you suggest we set up a wiki page with more details on the funds,
or would a call / email be sufficient?

It needs to be in writing to make sure that here is less space for a
misunderstanding. I suggest email, but wiki also works.

Hi board,

We had a request from someone who wants to be sponsored (paraphrasing
slightly) because their "employer made contributions towards hackfests
in emerging countries" and in general, we've had some large requests
for a hackfest which is planned for a location that makes no financial
sense given where the listed attendees are coming from.

Is the board increasing the budget assigned to the TC because of a
donation or has this person misunderstood something?

If there is additional budget to hold hackfests in unusual locations,
we need to know now.
