More opportunities to get to DebConf15

Hey all!

DebConf is the annual Debian Conference. It's an event that brings
people together, and that can make a really big difference regarding
your participation in the community, as it allows to put faces to
names and fosters collaboration in a way that IRC can't really solve.

This year, DebConf15 takes place in Heidelberg, Germany, between
August 15 and August 22. If you would like to be a part of DebConf but
missed out on the original sponsorship signup deadline, you have two
new opportunities!

The first one is the diversity outreach campaign. This campaign is
intended to bring people to DebConf that will broaden its scope and
reach (translators, artists, people that have never attended DebConf
before, people from countries where Debian has a small presence, and
people from groups that are generally not well represented in
DebConf). More information about this in this blog post:

The second one are travel grants done by Google. This is specifically
for women in tech, that are either in academia or have a professional
background in tech. You can read more about this here:

Feel free to communicate this info to any other people that you think
would benefit from the opportunity.
