Goody. I've removed everyone but you from the CC list. Let's start the 
double receive from scratch on this thread......

That should not be a problem. I would prefer, however, for our 
sponsorship to be of the conference, rather than a specific part of it. 
Of course, one can take that money and BUY a breakfast......

I think this one is best avoided. At least from wine hackers. I think 
this conference is important for the project, and at least as a symbol, 
I think people who contribute to the project should not have to pay.

Let's try to figure out the expenses before figuring out the income 
sources. First thing's first. We need a place.
