It's in the form of a cheque which is what Dinesh preferred and so is
still in Janatsu's account.

"Soon finish" is what we wanted to do six months ago. I don't know
what other hurdles we will have to face. The important points are that
it's not done yet and we don't know when it will be.

Work on the last conference began in late April/early May of 2009.
We're roughly in the same period of time right now and our ambitions
are higher.
There were lots of problems with the last event which sprung primarily
from a lack of time and I'm not looking forward to repeating every
single mistake again.
