PyCon 2004 is happening in March and a number of people have expressed
interest in getting David Goodger some funding so he can make the trip
and lead a docutils/ReST sprint (remember, he's currently looking for
a job http://starship.python.net/~goodger/cv/resume_David_Goodger.html).
I've volunteered to try to get pledges for donations towards making this
possible, since I think it's a great way for docutils users to
simultaneously "give a little back" for the software and to enable some
intensive development during the 4-day sprint portion of PyCon.
If you would like to make a donation pledge, please email me with the
amount you'ld be willing to give, and whether or not you want to remain
anonymous. If there are enough donations in all, we'll figure out ways to
get the money to David. If we end up falling short, then nobody has to
The total needed is about $500 (US) without lodging, more if there isn't a
way to have stay for free. So far we have $100 from Steve Holden.
More information on the conference is here:
Note that the sprints are March 20-23, before the main conference dates
of March 24-26.
Thanks very much!
