DebConf Travel Sponsorship

How it works and can we do better

Every year, there are many criticisms about the DebConf travel sponsorship process. However, allocating this amount fairly is quite a hard problem. There are also many considerations, such as budgeting uncertainties, getting people motivated to do the rating and allocation early, and deciding what criteria to even use in allocations.

This BOF is designed to lead to an improvement for DebConf12, but that improvement will not come from talking now, but by acting early next year.

For BOF planning, please see outline and contribute at http://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf11/TravelSponsorshipBOF
