Hi Chris, The Debconf Team has no control over the timeline of reimbursements by Trusted Organizations. I have been expedient in processing the reimbursement requests put in front of me, according to the process set out with the help of Luca Filipozzi for a supposed better efficiency in processing reimbursements, only to have them end up in the perennial SPI black hole. There was not much point sending a notice when all that could be said was "Well, yes, there is a delay, we have no idea when it'll get through". Apparently the contracted help has finally been recruited (yesterday!) and planets are in such an alignment that some reimbursements might get processed this week. Maybe. I really feel uncomfortable sending a notice until some tangible progress has happened, however. -- Nicolas Dandrimont BOFH excuse #218: The UPS doesn't have a battery backup.
