Sponsoring a Tails hackfest?
The Tails project is a Debian-based live system focusing on privacy and
anonymity. For more information about Tails and their relationship with
Tails is organizing a two-day hackfest and a contributors summit in
July. They are requesting sponsorship from Debian for the events, in
order to cover travel costs for contributors. Their overall budget is
between 10kEUR and 20kEUR.
- they are a derivative working closely with Debian (and being a live
system, having their own public identity makes sense)
- they are doing a lot of their work in Debian -- the hackfest could be
seen as a Debian sprint
- they are addressing important issues, and clearly contribute to Debian
having something to say about such issues
I am planning to allocate 5000 EUR.
