    Here are some additional requirements:

    1. Allow hours as well as days in advance of event to be specified (hours are useful for a day-of online event reminder).
    2. Cancel scheduled mailings for an event if the event is cancelled.
    3. When copying an event, copy the mailings that have been scheduled for it as well.

    If these requirements are included, what is the impact on the project's budget.

    Separately, what would be the additional cost associated with providing a D6 compatible version (I'm unclear on the current status of funding on-going support for D6).

    This is a great feature.

    The one key addition I'd like to see if custom data tokens. The event info tokens are great for templates and such but since they're always the same for all participants, they save time but don't allow real mailmerge. 

    It would also be nice if recipients could be specified based on custom data directly rather than having to go through groups.
