- travel costs in case you need reimbursement. Note that reimbursement money is scarce, don't ask for it if you don't really need it please! The organizer of this event must ask the openSUSE board (cc Jos Poortvliet) for a decision to reimburse travelers once it is clear how much will be needed.
Some material is needed for the booth setup. Please add things you are able to provide:
|Diamond_gr||PromoDVDs||300||If we don't have 11.4, we'll burn some.|
|Diamond_gr||Flyers||150||We'll print some zypper cheat sheets, Greek help etc|
|Warlordfff||Posters||3 big posters, 10 smaller posters|
|Warlordfff||Buttons||200||the first buttons we made with our machine.|
|Warlordfff||Promo Materials||?||hands free material|
Please add the things which you may require from the international team. Be sure to share this with the -marketing list!
