Also, please indicate the following: :* Put an X in the $$$ column if you need funding to attend, and visit the FUDCon ticket tracker to make a funding request. We have a limited budget and will work hard to fund as many people as possible. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event. We are making arrangements for attendees from other geographic regions to encourage specific initiatives such as future FUDCon events, but preference may otherwise be given to people in Latam America. :* Put a V in the Veg column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event. If you prefer vegan fare, please mark that column VV. We will do our best to make sure everyone is accommodated! :* Put your T-shirt size in the Size column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available. (Use a W to note a women's size if needed.) :* Roomsharing: If you want or need to share a room, mark yes in the "Roomshare?" column. Once you have a roommate, both of you should mark your roommate's name in the block as well. If you need a roommate, look for someone with just a yes in the column, and contact them via email. If you encounter any problems, let the organizers know. :Use the Comments section for anything else you think organizers need to know, or to offer or ask for space or rides. Fedora means freedom — registration is free and open to everyone. You can pre-register anonymously, but now is a great time to create a Fedora account if you don't have one! For those new to Fedora, you can register in the Fedora Account System and follow the instructions there to complete the CLA (soon to be FPCA). This process usually takes less than 5 minutes. # Name $$$ Veg Size Roomshare?
