Authorizing expenses by DSA without prior DPL approval


The following process, previously discussed in [1] and [2], is now

  The Debian System Administrators (DSA) can make expenses for up to
  US$400 to support the operation of Debian infrastructure (pay
  shipping costs, purchase of cheap hardware such as cables, replacement
  disks, etc.).

  DSA does not need to wait for DPL approval to make such expenses. The
  DPL will always approve such expenses, provided that the total
  outstanding amount spent in advance of DPL approval never exceeds

  The process can be revoked at any time by the DPL. Expenses that were
  already made at the time of the revocation, and that meet the other
  conditions, will still be approved by the DPL.

The expected implementation of the process is:
1. DSA agrees internally on making an expense
2. DSA proceeds with making the expense
3. DSA submits the approval request and the reimbursement request
   in the same email (see [1], "How to get your reimbursement" for
4. DPL approves.
5. TO reimburses DSA.

Note that this process does not change anything from the Trusted
Organization treasurer's point of view. They are still expected to
wait for the DPL's approval before proceeding with reimbursement.
