Hello All,

At this time I would like to make a proposal that we have a month long
"WineConf 07 Fundraiser" starting on March 1st. Over the past three
years all funds sent to the WPF have been used to sponsor Wineconf
attendees travel and needs, and I'm sure these funds have helped in
many other worthwhile ways as well.
  What we could do is put up a news posting on the winehq front page
and also on the Wineconf 07 wiki page asking users and corporations if
they would like to help sponsor the next Conf. We could also put
together a "Donor list" thank you page, and list everyone that gives
and any comments that they would like to make.
  It has become clear that travel expenses for attendees is the major
obstacle in there decision on attending any conference. I know this is
not in any way a full solution to the travel expense problem, but it
may give one more person the opportunity to attend that other wise
would not have had the chance to share in this most pleasant
