Re: [Debconf-discuss] [Debconf-sponsors-team] Fwd: paypal donation cannot be used in Japan

Hi Holger,
No need for debian-jp to do any accounting. Just use the spi link for dc13 and drop me an email and I'll count it for the matching fund.

as paypal doesnt work for Debian people in .jp I'd suggest to make an
exception for them and let them use SPI as their payment method for this. And
I'd also suggest to let Debian.jp do the accounting for this: they are
friendly+trustworthy Debian people, so if they (=debian.jp) say: "The amount X
is coming from the individual A, B, C + D and is for this matching funds
thingy" I see no reason not to trust them.

Brian, can you please explicitly ACK this, so that our friends in Japan can
start sending us all their money?! :-)

thanks & cheers,
