The BoF session does not directly benefit AusCERT hence why they don't
offer to absorb the costs related to travel, etc.

That stated, AusCERT has delivered on their 4 or more discount
registration rate for OWASP Members and the cost to host at the Royal
Pines Resort.

Since OWASP has the potential to reach 1000+ people during AusCERT
2011 - is there another cost centre/budget within OWASP besides OoTM,
such as marketing, board approval, etc for this unique case?
