If we need two days for the FAD
TBH, I don't know how many days we need. But if it is less
than 2 days then we don't need to organize anything, just
make it the last day of Flock. Those 2 days look good in a
calendar, that's all. Note that it is brainstorming. :)
it's better to start on August 5, and so on August 7 people will
be able to
travel and reach Dresden. If people would fly very early on August 8 they will
be tired for Flock.
If we arrive to Dresden on August 7 then there is no benefit
for Fedora on saving money and on making it near Flock (near in
time and in distance). Also I'm not thinking about flying, I'm
thinking about nearby locations accessible by cheap and quick
transport like a train or a bus. Note that the locations I'm
thinking about are between 2 an 4 hours of drive. It can be closer
but I'm afraid that it raises the cost.
I always think about making an event as cheap as possible.
If this is not a top priority then maybe I misunderstand
I think is better to think why we need this FAD, why is important for our
team etc rather than budget. Before thinking about money and cost, I would
focus on content and ideas first.
These are also important questions, thank you for raising
them in public. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can answer.

I'm happy to see the discussions to organize a L10n FAD. I would be happy to
help organize it.
Thank you for joining, Jona.

Hi Rafal & everyone,
The hotel is expensive because is a super expensive hotel. Normally
accommodation in Germany is quite reasonable.
If you find a double room in a hotel in Germany 40 €/night,
including breakfast - then I'm all in a favor of making it.
Personally, I may attend FLOCK but I seriously doubt I will stay in
as I can't pay such prices. But AFAIK, one can stay anywhere, is not mandatory
to stay in the same hotel where the conference is.
So... why putting a FAD 3 days before FLOCK starts will cost near zero? I
didn't understand that part.
This part applies to the people being funded by Fedora. If we
explain that instead of funding one night (which is funded in this
particular hotel) they can fund 3 days of FAD then I hope the chance
they agree is higher. Also, I'm not telling it is exactly zero, it may
be slightly above. Or below. :)
The people who pay with their own money may meet wherever and
whenever they want, without explaining Fedora why they meet
and why it is so expensive.
If you plan to take a nap in a German train or bus, be careful, you
the stop. [...]
I assume that in that part we are going to travel in a large
group, all FAD attendees together, likely with our own bus which
may be cheaper than a public transport.
