* Observation: PGCon Brasil don't have 100% shure that founds will go
for this, so there is no promisse that Brasilian PUG will pay all the
costs of the two selected speakers. However, with the success of our
first PGCon Brazil its very resonable, but nobody really shure about
any think now. So we start these process early to work for it. Any
help in contact international sponsors will be very nice too.


Hope see you at Brazil soon,
