Thank you Martin. I think I was misunderstood here. My comment wasn't
related to funding request, rather  making a point on good practice when
organising community events, whether or not asking funding. For the event
in object, Markus already clarified that is a special situation, and sounds
good to me. For the records I want to clarify what I meant.
I think it's important that when a community event is organised, it's
advertised in the ML, and in the wiki page there is clear information on
how to join and possibly how to interact from remote, making it clear that
everyone who wish to contribute is welcome. I understand that in some cases
it's unlikely that more people will join. However, this makes important
difference to people who read it, because is a sign that GRASS project is
open for everyone to join and contribute, and moreover is in continuous
development. I have always appreciated the GRASS community for being
inclusive. And showing transparently what is going on during community
sprints would also attract more sponsorship when needed.
