Hi all,

We've said it a few times - it is really time to register and book travel 
and hotel for the ownCloud Contributor Conference coming in August!


For some of our contributors, cost can be a limitation for joining the conf. 
We have some budget set apart for travel support and you can send me a 
(private) mail to request travel support.

*Who and what?*
* this is meant to support contributors so they can join the conference. If 
you've got patches merged (any!) you are eligible.
* we give priority to more regular contributors and will also first support 
students and others who can be expected to need it more.
* we, at most, cover 80% of the costs of the cheapest accommodation option & 
main travel (train/airplane and hostel, not local transport, food etc) but 
we usually make personal arrangements and can make exceptions.
* we will ask you to help out with the organization of the event a bit, 
think about taking care of the registration desk and such. It won't be a lot 
and you will get an ownCloud t-shirt for it!
* You have to register for the conf and having send in a talk proposal is a 
plus. Note that the deadline for our CfP is Sunday!

* Please send a request to jos at owncloud.com. Include your estimated travel 
and hotel costs and a link to your github account.

Note that this isn't limited to code contributions - designers and other 
contributors are equally welcome and can send me their details, too.

Please don't be shy asking - our goal is to get everybody who wants to hack 
on ownCloud to join our conference and money shouldn't get in the way of 
that. Plenty of people live far or are students who can't just afford a 
flight ticket and that is what support is for.

I can't promise we can help everybody but please ask if money is what keeps 
you from joining the conf!

Everything I do and say is based on my view of the world today. I am not 
responsible for changes in the world, nor my view on it. Everything I say is 
meant in a positive and friendly way, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
