Hello Remo,

Actually I did not receive a $300 discount code since I think I already 
Boston Summit after attending to PTG on last February with a full 
discount code.

For this full discount code, more details are described in the third 
question & answer in: https://www.openstack.org/ptg .

A few days ago, I was reading one question & reply in openstack-dev 
mailing list:

After then, I asked one Korean translator whether he received a 300$ 
discount code or not,
and he said to me that he received the code with sharing his happiness.

Do the URLs I provided meet the answer for your question?

With many thanks,

>> If I receive a positive news on [3], then I will take appropriate actions to make the possible panel discussion successfully land on Boston Summit
>> (e.g., more discussion with speakers, well-preparing panel questions, ...).
>> Second, That's not all why it would be so nice and attractive for translators to come to Boston Summit. Forum is also important for I18n!
>> There will be more Forum discussion(s) with I18n people - but not limited to I18n: Zanata dev. team, Infra people, developers and operators.
>> I have created an Etherpad [4] to discuss ideas for nice topics during Boston Forum and included the Etherpad on [5].
>> We have sufficient time to well organize, prepare, and make successful Forum discussion(s) [6].
>> Please feel free to share your idea on [4] for fruitful discussions with I18n & translation.
>> Third, recently, I have also heard that all ATCs received 300$ discount codes a few days ago.
>> If you have translated >= 300 words from August 2016 to January 2017 but have not received such discount codes,
>> please check your e-mail inbox with spam folder and if there is no such e-mail for discount codes, then please tell me.
>> For such cases, I will take care of it by checking the exact statistics [7, 8] and asking to Foundation if needed.
>> I hope that many translators will come to Boston, see the presentation sessions, and also discuss I18n & translation feedback + issues for Forum.
>> Let's do brainstorming for Boston Summit & Forum for better I18n & translation world in OpenStack!
>> With many thanks,
