Hi all,

I received mail from the Debconf Newbies (for sponsoring first time
Debconf participants) and they informed me that they had to decline half
of the applicants including me.

I also received mail from the regular sponsoring today, where they
informed me that I will be probably sponsored (according to my position
in the queue) but maybe not fully.

The question is: If I don't get the full sponsoring, I will need parts
of the 500 dollars to participate to Debconf 10 in NY. What are the next
steps? In the form you asked the mentors to fill, I explicitly stated
that I'm fine using the 500 dollars to sponsor the student as long as my
own costs are fully covered, otherwise I want that money to be used to
cover my own traveling and accommodation costs.
