Dear board,

Where is the cap on registration fees for FOSS4G? You have closed open source to me with these steep registration fees. You have to change this. A few years ago I could hardly convince my departmental management to pay for registration. Now it is impossible! Please open up the conference again. Open open source! Those who cannot organize a conference below $500 should not be allowed to organize. Scale down. No fancy stuff. Back to the basics! Back to the core!

With kind regards,

Luc Boerboom
