Maybe it is worthwhile for the DPL to simply assign a sum of money for
travel grants every 3 - 6 months and then people could shortlist all the
opportunities like this, identify if there are volunteers who want to go
and find some way to divide the money up fairly between them?
The MiniDebConfs in Brazil and Singapore have already been mentioned in
a thread last week, there is also a MiniDebConf in Vienna soon and all
of these appear interesting.
