<petreu> eof
<fabian_a> good question
<fabian_a> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Accounting contains some data 
but only rh (usa) budget I guess.
<fabian_a> have anybody some more details?
<petreu> yes, the thing is , i tried to get a overview for the 
CountryOverview site
<petreu> but there isnt that much detailed information on the wiki
<GeroldKa> !
<fabian_a> make a rough estimate
<fabian_a> GeroldKa,
<GeroldKa> expenses and costs are very difficult to show them all (also 
in public); in the past we hadn't a overview at all
<GeroldKa> mostly it was that the event owner organised all and talked 
with max about his expenses
<GeroldKa> me from my perspective tried every event I organized to get 
at leat the room for sleeping paid
<GeroldKa> the fair ground expect Linuxtag is mostly for free
<GeroldKa> eof
