Re: [guadec-list] Registration fees

If we are able to get a free fee I'm sure we can get " a lot " of local ppl visit the GUADEC and get their first contact with GNOME development.
If GNOME wants fresh blood GUADEC is a good way to get it.

It was €30 for students, and €150 or something like that for
professional people.  Note that "professional" fee applied only to
those being sent by companies, not to those funding themselves, at
least that was the explanation last year.

I doubt registration fees are: if there were 300 participants last
year, that would amount to less than 10k euros (approximate: some
didn't pay the fee, some paid "professional" fee).  Cornerstone
sponsor on its own should provide more money, if I got it right.
