[OSGeo-Conf] About funding of FOSS4G

My advice, (as a Conf committee member, and past foss4g chair) is to 
note in your response that you wish to apply profit sharing locally, and 
how you wish that profit sharing split. This will be assessed alongside 
other proposals. A modest amount of money saved for worthy osgeo related 
activities might be considered favourably.

Note: If you are looking to run foss4g for the profit, then I recommend 
you look elsewhere to earn money. You will likely get a much greater 
return on invested time by flipping hamburgers at McDonalds.
