Description

I think it would be a great experience to participate this event and I would be very pleased about your help.

  • From a quick look, I don't know if Joerg's estimation of about 1000 USD sponsoring/funding still is up-to-date.
  • A flight with a trustworthy airline to Mumbai (and retoure) is around 850 EUR (~ 1225 USD) at the moment; price might increase if we get closer.
  • A direct flight to Pune is unrealistic as it is from +250 EUR up to +650 EUR on top to the flight costs to Mumbai - and even causes limitations due to less frequent flights.
  • I have no idea about the hotel room/accommodation costs, but Joerg should have experiences here.
  • Joerg and I could also share a hotel room, if that helps somehow (and if Joerg still can sleep if I snore).
  • I have proposed one talk so far, but I'm thinking about adding another one. I'm also open for suggestions given that I'm active at packaging, ambassadors and mentoring.
  • It would be really a pleasure to me if I can share my experience of the previously mentioned projects and teams with other Fedora contributors.
  • I need to get passport, which should take up to 4-6 weeks according to the website.
  • I also need to get a visa, that should take up to 1-2 weeks according to the website.
  • Did I forget something? Hopefully not, but if so, please let me know and just ask...

I would be helpful to get a soon reply, similar like at Joerg, because I have to deal with my employer regarding vacation, flights won't get cheaper if we wait longer and passport/visa also need time till they're done.

Ah, the flight costs are for an economy, non-rebookable, non-transferable and non-refundable flight. Such "features" increase the pricing drastically. Making a flight rebookable is between +50 EUR and +100 EUR.

I was remembered to attach my boarding pass/receipt of the flight. With which GnuPG key can I encrypt it before uploading?

My boarding passes are attached as remembered by Satya's e-mail. The flight ticket payment was performed via a Red Hat credit card, so I don't need any reimbursement. Anything else, where I could help to get this closed?
