[Osmf-talk] Travel-to-panama expenses

This is actually a request for the OSMF board... but since everyone is 
trigger-happy today in OSMF-talk, I'll post here :-)

The scenario is the following: I've been offered to travel to Panama 
(central-south America) in November for a latin-american meeting about 
semantic SDIs vs. neo-geo and all that geo-stuff we all know and love. 
There'll be lots of mapping agencies unaware of OSM ready to be brainwashed.

I cannot afford the trip, so I've contacted Jorge Batista (the cuban guy in 
SotM) and Fredy Rivera (the colombian guy at SotM, AKA "the keychain guy") in 
order to send them on an OSM evangelising mission. Colombia and Cuba are 
close to Panama so the trip would not be ridiculously expensive.

Question is: would the OSMF be willing to pay for the plane tickets for this 
evangelising mission??

And a request for all OSMF board nominees: please state your point of view on 
spending OSMF money on community development, and on national/regional 
mapping agencies.
