From Fedora Project Wiki

The overall budget from Red Hat for this event is $15,000. This is a HARD limit.


Into this total we must fit the following requirements:

  • Lunch on Saturday
  • Refreshments on Friday and Sunday
  • Travel and lodging for the following people. (total 7255)
  • FUDPub on Saturday night (food + 1 beverage?)
  • Setup costs for venue
    • Room costs?
    • Security/facility monitor?
    • A/V?
    • Wifi networking setup?

7255 + 5900 = 13,155 so far

Why food for some, not for others? Red Hat folks get a per diem. A couple other people get per diem because they're not dayjobbers and don't typically have those expenses either.


This is based on a total attendance of ~120 people.
