For the record, unattended email addresses and staff on holidays meant
Griffith could not organise students in time for this years Pycon.
Maybe next year.

        This year the Australian Python (the computer language)
        Conference is
        being held in Brisbane, at the BCEC.
        
          http://2014.pycon-au.org/
        
        It is being organised primarily by members of Humbug, the local
        open
        source group.
        
        In order to raise awareness of Open Source and Python in
        particular
        Humbug has decided to sponsor 2 students from each of the 3
        Universities
        in Brisbane (ie, 6 students in total).
        
        At $50 the student tickets are already subsidised by the
        conference, but
        this means 6 students can attend the conference and the sprint
        days for
        free.  (During the sprints Python is worked on under the
        auspices of a
        core Python developer.  Superficially, the idea is to close as
        many
        tickets as possible.  The real motivation is to introduce people
        to
        inner workings of open source, in the hope they might
        contribute.)
        
        We are hoping staff of classes that use Python could announce
        Pycon, and
        select two suitable students for us.  Our preference is the two
        people
        who are most likely to stimulated by an Open Source conference
        specialising in Python.  In particular, their current abilities
        aren't a
        consideration.
        
        Can you let me know if this is possible.  If so, the procedure
        is:
        
        - The students register for Pycon 2014 in the normal way.  (They
        can
          register for any kind of ticket.)
        
        - You tell me the names of the two students you have selected by
          replying to this email.
        
        - I will send the students a voucher code, which will give them
        a
          $50 discount off the price of their ticket.

        because
        they have already chosen their students.
