Holger's done a lot of good work with video for Debian and is also
co-maintainer of FAI, and I'd expect that he'd be able to give a talk at
the Debian miniconf at LCA too. Having some more cross-pollination between
LCA and DebConf would be good in general too, for both events, I think.

So I'm in favour of the grant, especially if it helps get LCA's video
recording stuff up to scratch.

One other thing I'll throw in: the LA ctte's discussed a couple of times
the possibility of helping to organise national tours for international
guests -- so that if someone interesting is in the country, they have
a chance to visit Perth or Cairns or Adelaide as well as just Sydney
or Melbourne. I don't know how much time Holger's likely to have,
but if there's interest from LUGs around the place, we could probably
arrange something. Maybe half/half travel contributions from the LUG/LA
or something?
