I'm still willing to do a site visit, I am reluctant to specify a time/date, as I have the most flexible time schedule. If someone wants to join me, they should please suggest a time.
Otherwise I can go sometime this week.
Graham, Marc and I have been thinking that UCT is really our preferred choice. We have lots of contacts there, I have done events there before and know the procedures to get amazing internet, and a lot of things will be free, that we would have to pay for at stias. Seeing that we're aiming to get a lot of free attendance, I think this is a major factor.
I will try to spend some time setting up a budget sheet on google docs, working from my past experience as well as the debconf reports, and see where we stand with required funding.
I will also try find out a bit about residence accommodation at UCT, as I think that's another potential benefit of being at UCT...
I am working on the July vac as a most suitable time, any objections?
