As I said in my previous message, we do set a deadline: the main
feature freeze listed on the release schedule. I was merely pointing
out that the deadline for contributors to qualify for registration
discounts is prior to this Bug Smash event, and so any contributions
made during the event won't solely qualify anyone for a registration
code. Some of our conference coordinators had expressed concern that
new or latent contributors participating in the Bug Smash may be
expecting a discount code, so I volunteered to send a follow-up to
this thread on their behalf.
