Status of GUADEC’s sponsorship requests

The Travel Committee has received 48 sponsorship requests and we have started to processing them. It will be a bit hard, as you may guess and as you may deduce according the following tables:

General statitics
5 Females
43 Males
19 Speakers (not confirmed yet)
8 Google Summer of Code students
30 Members of GNOME Foundation
1 Applicant declined his request

Requests and funds (in US dollars)
Minimum requested: $ 59,038.-
Maximum requested: $ 61,101.-
Funds available for sponsoships: $ 30,000.-

The amount requested should be a bit higher than it is shown in the second table, because we need to get some clarification from some people. However, I am confident we could save at least $ 9,000 if we look for a different lodging than the main one recommended by the organizers.

Sooner than later we should send emails asking for more information (when it were needed). We will do our best.
