It's August 1, which means that Q3 of our fiscal year begins in one
month -- September through November -- and we have to sort out our
I would like all of you to take a look at this page, and offer your
thoughts and comments. If you are an event owner in Q3, it is
particularly important that you take a look.
Things to consider:
(0) We have a few weeks to tweak this, and want to make our final
decisions somewhere in the last week of August, so that come September
1, people know what to expect.
(1) If you are an event owner, do you think your event is getting enough
support? If you have either *more* budget than you think you will need,
or *less* budget than you think you will need, please speak up.
(2) Realize that this is a zero-sum game. To increase one budget
requires decreasing something else. We are trying to balance the needs
of people across the world. We are doing this openly and transparently
so that we can try to reach a consensus that works for everyone, rather
than just dictating policy.
(3) We will *not* be mass-producing Fedora 10 media with a separate
budget. What you see on this page is what you get. Event owners are
free to pool together bits of their budgets to produce swag at better
prices. Use your local Ambassadors meetings on IRC.
(4) Realize that these are just initial thoughts, and that we want to
work together as a group to handle budget in a way that empowers as many
people as possible.
(5) Remember that with budget comes responsibility. Organization, event
reports, new contributors, follow-up, etc.
