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.

Hope to see > you at the event :-) 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).
