Ravi, Thank God someone feels like this. Be our guest, please prove us wrong
by getting us a great big sponsorship. We really welcome help in this field.
I'm sure if you are succesful, and we have enough funds, we could reduce the
grant or use it elsewhere than for the Wiki Conference.

Warm regards,

Ashwin Baindur
