It's been a few years since I've been to Raleigh, so my memory isn't
so fresh, but how close are hotels etc to the office ?

Just to clarify, this means Fedora people get free entrance to fudcon,
not free entry to rhsummit right ?

(as cool as that would be, I suspect the people organising the
 summit might feel a little uneasy with a few hundred "oh yeah, I hack on Fedora"
 people trying to blag their way in :-)

My only issue with coupling it with the rh summit is that due to budget constraints,
not every engineer gets to go to the rh summit.  By association, this now
means "you don't get to go to fudcon either".
