Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you... when I talk about an even, I
mean something that we can then "sell" to people for sponsorship.
That is, that we can say that we have concrete plans that we need
to finance.

I have lost you a little here - are you talking about Roman's
efforts to gather resources for presentations? Or dsrogers's call
for ideas on what to present at comdex? Or something else?

In fairness (I think you are talking about comdex) what ORA does
with their money, and who they decide to invite to an event, is
outside the scope of this discussion. There are 3 or 4 GIMP
people in the US, and 1 or 2 (not sure how many) went to
represent the GIMP. This is completely different from organising
a developers conference to outline the future of the gimp.

Which letter?

I'm afraid that I have no idea what you're talking about here.
Could you clarify what money you're talking about, which letter,
and particularly what this has to do with the conference next
year? Thanks.
