Somewhere the question got lost about how Agnes was approaching us:
 1. as sponsors / booth purchasers
 2. as a community with something interesting to tell

I read it as (1), and regarding that I think it's safe to say that no, we 
don't want a 3500 EUR booth at a conference. Although if someone describes a 
business case that makes sense of spending money to present ourselves to this 
particular audience, I'll be happy to take that statement back.

That's fine, Paul.

Well, maybe. I was just preparing a talk on governance, manifesto, code of 
conduct (also the FreeBSD one, which is very very different in wording from 
the KDE bits) for a Dutch thingmabob, I may try to recycle it (and have 
emailed as much to Agnes, in the unlikely event that it was reason (2), 
above).
