Right; my position is that I'm not really keen on deciding myself how to
split the travel sponsorship budget between 'newbies' and 'oldtimers'.
So I would be open to let the bursaries team decide themselves on the
balance between 'new contributors', 'old contributors but new to
DebConf', and 'old DebConfers'. However, the Chairs pointed out that
providing an overall budget for each category might be easier for the
bursaries team. So I've asked the chairs for input about reasonable
quotas and categories.

Yes. I wonder about the respective merits of the daytrip vs the
conference dinner too. But I'll leave that up to you (the DebConf team).

Thanks a lot for your work on that!
