Won a Lottery

There are things that can be bought for money, and there are things that cannot. The following one is from the later category:

From: Theodore Ts'o
Subject: Maintainer's Lottery: Invitation to the 2008 Kernel Summit


This year, we will be hosting the 2008 kernel summit in Portland,
Oregon, just before the Plumber's Conference.
This year, we are continuing the MAINTAINERS lottery which we start last
year.  The way the lottery works is that we pick 5 people at random from
the MAINTAINERS list and invite them to attend the kernel summit.
:-)  As you may have guessed, you were picked in the lottery, and we hope
that you will be able to join us.

Yay! Now to get the visa paperwork done and to secure the funding :-)

Yep, I have almost missed it - my spam filter marked it as "unsure".

Just for motivation - I won a ticket for (Czech) "Distribution of the year" ceremonial similar way. Finally I was not able to get there, but it looks I missed a good party. I wish you better luck. :-)

I hope your visa application goes well and you will make a nice blog post from summit :).
