It's the companies who sponsor and make money on Debian. Why do you
think the companies who sponsor debconf shell so much money on Debian
See the list of sponsors.
Also then what would say of nullcon India and other such conferences.
It's up to the people who want to have the conference to put in
efforts or not, not you.
There are dozens of conferences round the year which use similar models.
Hope Conference US sells tickets for the conference
although it was in bad news for not enforcing its own CoC but that's a
different matter altogether.
What needs to be understood is there is no 'company' behind Debian to
foot the bill. It's a volunteer-based organization. Companies who
benefit from Debian continue to sponsor the conferences and those who
cannot send their people as corporate attendees.
One point to note is Debian does sponsor people who have skills, show
commitment and works towards making Debian better which includes
footing fully or partially their food, travel and stay at the local
I am guessing you have no issues with ruby conference asking for
sponsorship money and making money on tickets, only Debian ?
I could give dozens of examples and if you put in the hard work you
probably would get them all as well.
Give me an argument worth fighting for, mate.
