17:35:29 <bexelbie> #link https://pagure.io/mindshare/issue/100
17:35:48 <bexelbie> Right now we don't really ahve anything to vote on
17:36:01 <bexelbie> however, I think we need to think about this one a bit without regards to the money
17:36:20 <bexelbie> WDYT about funding someone to attend RH Summit?
17:36:51 <bexelbie> I have opinions, but I'd like to not influence y'all's thoughts - especially those of you who don't also work for RH
17:37:44 <sumantro> bexelbie, I would like to hear them
17:38:25 * bexelbie wants to hear from nb and @bt0dotninja first if possible
17:38:33 <bexelbie> and you too sumantro :P
17:38:35 <nb> hi
17:38:37 <bexelbie> but after them if you don't mind
17:38:54 <tg-fedmindshare1> <b​t0dotninja> actually they are active fedora contributors for me is fine
17:39:12 <nb> bexelbie, we historically haven't funded people because we had enough people already there to work our booth
17:40:17 * nb is not necessarily opposed
17:40:33 <bexelbie> In general, we have the FPL, FCAIC and often the FPgM there along with many other RH employed Fedora contributors
17:40:56 <nb> I am a bit conflicted in my opinions
17:41:08 <nb> I think it is good to fund a variety of people
17:41:33 <nb> but the budget side of me thinks if we already have plenty of people that we don't have to fund, then we might not should spend budget on getting more people there
17:41:45 <nb> but since he is already going to be there and just needs hotel....... maybe? does he have a cost estimate?
17:42:09 <nb> I think it is good to have non-RH people at our tables also, so people don't get the impression that Fedora is just RH employees
17:43:23 <bexelbie> What I am hearing you say, nb, is that we might want to fund people who just need partial funding and are already scheduled to be at RH Summit - but we don't normally fund because we have so many folks there already\
17:43:26 <bexelbie> is that right?
17:43:59 <tg-fedmindshare1> <b​t0dotninja> it's a fair point
17:44:25 <nb> bexelbie, yeah, i think so
17:44:36 <sumantro> i concur with nb
17:45:43 <bexelbie> @bt0dotninja?
17:45:59 <tg-fedmindshare1> <b​t0dotninja> sounds very fair the nb pov
17:46:06 <bexelbie> cool
17:46:13 <bexelbie> this basically mirrors my own thoughts as well
17:46:35 <bexelbie> I am going to coordinate with mattdm about what our booth conversation points are and then continue talking with David about his comfort with the message
17:46:43 <bexelbie> any other thoughts?
17:47:00 <sumantro> nopes
17:47:25 <bexelbie> #topic Open Floor
17:47:48 <bexelbie> my laptop died on Monday so I ahven't had a chance to go through the "needs event reports" and do follow ups
17:48:14 <nb> I got funding approved at work for SELF so I won't need to ask for an increase to it's budget
17:48:25 <nb> when I got the event approved initially i wasn't sure
17:48:34 <tg-fedmindshare1> <b​t0dotninja> i can do it bex
17:48:45 <sumantro> i can help you bex with that
17:49:39 <bexelbie> @bt0dotninja and sumantro that would be awesome-sauce
17:49:40 <bexelbie> thank you!
17:49:44 <bexelbie> nb that is fantastic
17:49:53 <tg-fedmindshare1> <b​t0dotninja> :)
