The board is requested to vote on the following matter:
[ ] a. Cover travel and hotel expenses for up to 5 Inkscape
developers to participate in LGM 2014, maximum of $500
[ ] b. Do not cover expenses for Inkscape developers to attend LGM.
LGM is an important meeting for the Libre graphics movement. This is
a good place to showcase our upcoming release, Inkscape 0.91. Having
Inkscape developers get together is always a good thing. Having
Inkscape developers talking with others in the Libre Graphics
movement might even be better.
Unfortunately, it is probably too late to have a developer propose to
give a talk on Inkscape at the meeting.

This just came up on the dev maillist: does Inkscape have a Mac
This looks like a board issue. Although I have a Mac, I am quite the
noob on it, and do not know about Mac developer IDs. Perhaps su-v can
If this is something we need for a smoother experience on Mac, I hope
someone can take initiative or tell me how to get the ID and credentials
for us. Considering we are so close to native OSX builds, it'd be pretty
nice to release 0.91 with it.
At LGM, two people offered to help us raise money:
Sirko Kemter (who teaches the use of Inkscape and was one of the
organizers of LGM) has offered to host a developer's hacking session in
Leipzig, possibly in September. He has suggested that he could get money
from Google for this.
David Crossland (who has a contract with Google to work on Google Fonts)
is eager to get 0.91 out as it has some font related features. He has
suggested that he might be able to find money to pay someone in the
Philippines to do release work. I am not sure how serious he was.
