Everything is flexible, and I think we made a mistake a few years back when
we reacted so violently against a (small) failure related to this. However,
it is crucial that no toes are stepped on (or cut off) in the sponsorship
process, so contact the seven team <seven-contact at lca2007.linux.org.au> if
you have any requests/requirements with regards to additional sponsorship.
