- 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 North 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.)
- 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.

Lightning talks - Sunday
We'll do lightning talks after lunch on Sunday. These talks are to be no longer than 5 minutes, at which point we will gong you out. Talk about what you are passionate about — and it doesn't have to necessarily be Fedora.
The lightning talks will be administered by Ian Weller; official sign-ups for slots will be done after Saturday morning pitches.
You will have 5 minutes; slides are discouraged because they may take a while to set up, but if you really want to use slides, please send them to Ian well ahead of time. I highly recommend rehearsing your talk at least once.
