In article <022051D6-7CD3-43CA-BD3C-511F7EFAC9E2@csperkins.org> you write:

RIPE's budget is on its web site:

https://www.ripe.net/publications/docs/ripe-735

Most of their revenue is membership fees, €35M of a €37M budget.
Meeting revenue was only budgeted at 235K so it wouldn't have been
much of a stretch to forego it.

This is totally different from the IETF which has no members, no
membership fees, and gets a substantial fraction of its income from
meeting fees.

I would be as happy as anyone else to have all of our meetings be free
to everyone but since the Money Faeries don't seem to be showering us
with free cash, if someone proposes we do that, they need to explain
how the budget will work.
