@wallento
sorry, I may be short on time, the whole family is sick :(
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@wallento sorry to hear that. Let's keep it tight this morning.
@hatimak Do we have a hangout link?
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
@jeremybennett i have resent the mail from my side
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatimak Got it.
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
just a moment i am the hangouts but cant seem to find the link
does this work out?
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak

@wallento @jeremybennett thanks a lot for today’s call.

  1. i have updated my risk register.
  2. mail to bill will soon be sent out as discussed.
  3. i have also just spoken to my advisior in college. he confirmed that in case of undergraduates, re-imbursement is granted for a few conference within india. but international conferences is limited to phd students and faculty members. there is some hope because my advisor suggested i speak with the academic dean for my particular case. i will be speaking with the dean on either 7 or 8 july. personally, i am not very hopeful that the dean will be willing to grant funds for the international conference. i say it because i know not of a single case in which international conference funds were granted to undergraduates although i know several who attended such conferences.
  4. i am afraid that the gsoc stipend will not come in handy because i will be using it to partially pay my college tuition fees.

my intention is to be able to raise funds on my own as far as i can. i know that you guys are working very hard to get sponsorship for FOSSi (i follow twitter), so if i can arrange for funds myself that would only help you guys and that is my objective. i shall get back to you after speaking with my dean.

thanks a lot :)

Stefan Wallentowitz
@wallento
hi @hatimak, consider the funding secured. We usually have a cap of 1000 Euro, but I am confident we can get you in for that. As you say, it would be awesome if your university provides funding to subsidize, but we can get it covered. Where are you located in India (next airports)?
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatim I reinforce what @wallento said - between FOSSi and Embecosm we'll make sure you can get to the UK. I hope you can come for the whole week Monday - Monday, so you can join ChipHack. You will almost certainly need a letter of invitation to get a visa which we can organize.
Stefan Wallentowitz
@wallento
yeah, we have a template for that at FOSSi, which worked fine in the past
I will take care of getting you one
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
@wallento in that time frame (4-11 sept) i will be stationed in patna, bihar. the closest airport is PAT (airport code). i must add it is one of india’s most poorly maintained airport so for sure i will have to board a flight first to new delhi (DEL) or mumbai (BOM).
Stefan Wallentowitz
@wallento
I see
there are some trips for 908 Euro
20 hours
but there are no flights without two stops
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
i will try my best to get any help we can from my university. please give me some time. maybe once i speak to my dean (he also happens to be my lecturer), he will consider the case

but there are no flights without two stops

you are looking for flights to LHR, right?

Stefan Wallentowitz
@wallento
MAN is the destination
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
perfect. i am okay with the number of stops. i guess that can’t be helped :)
@jeremybennett thank you, i understand your point. i shall ping back in this group regarding the letter specifically once i get past formal procedures at college, or in the case any assistance is required earlier
BTW, @wallento a longer layover in DEL will not be an issue. i know of an arrangement that can get me a free admit into one of the lounges at the airport so i can work and could also rest
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatimak Let me know if you'd like my admin team to help with anything for you. We can certainly book any accommodation and local UK travel for you.
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
thank you @jeremybennett it is very kind of you :) i will certainly request your teams help with local arrangements at a later time. this will be the first ever visit to the UK 🤞
Stefan Wallentowitz
@wallento
Good mail to Bill, thanks @hatimak
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
my pleasure @wallento :)
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
Agreed nice mail.
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
thank you @jeremybennett
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@wallento Mary Bennett (GitHub user maryEmbecosm) has joined us, and her initial project is to pull together all the materials for ChipHack, including the EDSAC design. Could you add her to this team, so she can join in the discussion. Thanks. We'll also have two summer school students joining next week, but I don't yet know their GitHub user names.

@hatimak
hello @jeremybennett @wallento
i reached my college this morning. had left pune (my home city) day before yesterday
(yes it takes ~36 hours by train to get to college 😑)
i have mailed my dean regarding ORConf. hopefully he will agree to see me tomorrow so i can explain my position to him. i am guessing he will need a letter some time so i will let @wallento know well before time when it is required
thank you :)
as for the 2 days that have been lost in travel, i will be making up for that time over this weekend
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
i would like to confirm our next meeting on tuesday 11 july?
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatimak @wallento I might need to move our Tuesday meeting to Wednesday but I won't know until Monday. Hope that is OK for you (or I can do Thursday or Friday if that is more convenient).
Since ChipHack and ORCONF are in the UK, we'll provide the letter of invitation for you from here, which you will need to get a visa. I suggest we provide that for you immediately, so you don't need to wait.
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatimak I've copied you on an email to Judith Jones who will provide you with the necessary formal letter you will need to arrange a visa. If you need a separate letter to your Dean explaining why this visit is so important to us, then @wallento and I can provide that as well.
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
@jeremybennett meeting on any day is OK with me. i guess it depends on @wallento’s convenience :)
thank you for the email @jeremybennett. i have received the email but cannot decrypt it. you’ll notice that F1A8 AE00 is my old key. please use my new and working key available at https://hatimak.me/assets/DDB30A74.asc
this is the message i get -
None of the following secret keys could be found in 
yourkeychain (A4A2B647, F1A8AE00, 38AE50B5). The 
secret key is needed to decrypt this message.
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatimak This is really annoying. I deleted your old key, so how have I got it back again. I don't suppose you have it in a public repository and have failed to revoke it? My key cache is updated from public repositories.
Hmm looks like your old key is preserved as subkey.
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
@jeremybennett i am really really sorry for having caused this inconvenience to you. there is indeed a copy of it on public repositories and around a year ago i lost the private key along with the revocation certificate. so i have failed to revoke it. i accept that it is a failure on my part and that my actions are causing you inconvenience. i am very sorry.
Jeremy Bennett
@jeremybennett
@hatimak I'll resend in clear. I don't think there is any way to tell enigmail not to use a subkey. I'll talk to my colleagues to see if there is a solution.
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
thank you very much @jeremybennett and i am really sorry for having caused you trouble 🙏
Hatim Kanchwala
@hatimak
@jeremybennett @wallento i will be unavailable for meeting on wednesday. my hostel has served me a notice asking me to vacate my current room and move to another room. they will be allocating my current room to new students. please let me know if this is fine with you guys. :)
