    What about sponsor levels. Like for example here: http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/TwistedSoftwareFoundation#BenefitsofSponsorship

  21. Kev

    There are.

  22. ralphm

    I mean, making them visible as such

  23. Kev

    Like http://xmpp.org/sponsor/sponsor-the-xsf/ ?

  24. ralphm

    like on the Twisted home page

  25. ralphm

    i.e. I don't see the levels there

  26. ralphm

    (and yes I did forget we had levels already)

  27. Kev

    You don't see them on our homepage, or on the page I linked (which is linked via the sponsor page from the home page)?

  28. ralphm

    On the home page.

  29. ralphm

    If we

  30. ralphm

    would show the levels and order them accordingly, that'd also show (roughly) the impact of said sponsorship

  31. ralphm

    I'm also noting this line on our sponsor page:

  32. ralphm

    "Sponsorship applies on a calendar-year basis."

  33. ralphm

    Given that, I assume a bunch of those currently listed should probably be removed.

  34. ralphm

    (or us changing that line)

  35. Kev


  36. Kev

    If Laura and Simon are redoing the site (I guess as part of Bear's moving-it-to-static?), this seems like something to flag to them.

    we were never that strict about removing expired sponsors, but I guess we should be

  49. ralphm


  50. ralphm

    I don't know exactly, but I think that box would be rather empty if we followed our guidelines

  51. Kev

    USSHC would be there.

  52. Alex

    and I agree with you, we should show the level and weight them on the page

  53. ralphm

    Kev: hence rather

  54. Kev


  55. Kev

    I mean: I think that's the only one.

  56. Kev

    Rather than "No, you're wrong, we'd have a sponsor so it wouldn't be at all bare".

  57. ralphm


  58. Alex

    highest level on top, if they equal sort alphabetic, by date or random

  59. ralphm

    and the ISOC now, of course

  60. Kev


  61. Kev

    Although they're not in the rotation yet :)

  62. Kev

    (I think)

  63. ralphm

    "by date" doesn't seem relevant given the 'one year' and 'pro rato' thingies

  64. ralphm

    if we keep that

  65. Alex

    what are they using to build the new page? A cms, plain HTML only?

  66. Alex

    or is it based on Bears work?

  67. Kev

    We agreed to go with a plain/generated site.

  68. Kev

    I don't know if they've started from scratch or are re-using Bear's work.

    I just got an offer from the FOSSDEM hotel Chambord at the rate €90 who should I send the info to ?

  71. jabberjocke


  72. Kev

    dwd / ralphm: Poke.

  73. dwd

    jabberjocke, Florian ralphm and me would be great.

  74. dwd

    jabberjocke, By "offer", you mean a block offer or an individual room?

  75. ralphm


  76. ralphm

    I also see that booking.com has only a few rooms left for 29-1 to 2-2 (4 nights), so I'd be surprised that this could hold our party

  78. ralphm

    Interestingly, Brussels is still a dark spot for 4G connectivity.

  79. ralphm

    Yay politics.
