Thanks Max,
it's good to see our event within the list.

I did that. In Q2 I've arranged "F9 Release
without financial assistance from FAMSCo, though I've been insisted to have
funds, by FamSCo. But, I managed that locally and thought that FAMSCo budget
should be redirected to some more appropriate event on Q2 list.

When I first got this mail, there was $2000+ allotted for 4
be divided by Harish Pillay. Now it's decreased into $1500. I have an
event <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents/ReleaseParty/F10/Dhaka>coming
on. I don't know how much our event going to get from that 1,500, but
decreasing further would make the possiblity of getting an adequate budget
is less. I would request not to decrease it further.
