that establishes caps based on length of involvement and quantification
of contributions, which could potentially inhibit these two groups.

The Conservancy has asked to know the names and email addresses of
approved attendees. Many people do not yet know for certain if they can
attend or if so for how long, but the list shows people who have
expressed that they *might* be able to attend. This vote will authorize
travel reimbursement for the if they do choose to come. Some of these
people are local, or will have travel paid for by other entities, or
will only need to travel within Europe, so we expect that most attendees
will require less than the $2000 cap. The venue can comfortably hold 12
people, so we are trying to ensure we have about that number of
attendees. We may want to recruit alternates if people on the above
