Where was this and what should we (have) spent money on?
(I'm not sure what you refer to. The only thing I can think of is
possibly Alioth, but I'm not convinced buying a new machine will help
at this stage. costa is doing pretty well right now and HP has
committed to a new box by summer/fall).

And we have done so in the past. If there is a warranted need to buy
stuff or spend Debian money or other things, please do not hesitate to
mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We do make quite bad use of our monetary resources
at the moment and this is partly because nobody is requesting money
for useful stuff.
Also see the mail to -project (Subject: Re: Debian-Edu developer
meeting in Nafplion, Greece) I'll post in the next hour.
