Sun Regional Delegate Program for 2005

      As with previous LCAs, Sun Microsystems has kindly offered to sponsor
      the Regional Delegates Program (RDP) for LCA 2005. For the LCA 2005 RDP,
      there will be ten winners: one from each of the Australian states and
      territories; a national winner; and a winner representing New Zealand.
      Each of these winners will receive:
       - transport to LCA 2005
       - accommodation
       - professional registration at the conference (including all the
      normal things which come with that)
       - special recognition as a RDP winner
      Additionally, LCA provides an important mechanism for developers to
      network with each other, and the RDP winners will have excellent
      opportunities to further their open source projects.
      This is the first year that New Zealand has been included in the
      competition, which has prompted some changes in how the RDP is being run
      this year. The timetable for the RDP is as follows:
       - entrants should draft a 100 word or less description of how the open
      source community would benefit from their presence at LCA 2005
       - these should be emailed to, including an
      indication of where the entrant lives by midnight, Friday the 18th of
      February 2005 [1].
       - the winners will be announced by the end of February and travel
      will be arranged.
       - RDP winners attend the conference and have a great time
      If a winner has already registered for the conference, then a refund of
      that registration will be provided.
      We look forward to many interesting entries,
      The LCA 2005 team
      1: The information about where you live will be used solely for judging
      the competition, and will then be destroyed.
