Re: Request to support Mozilla Global Sprint

Here is my personal opinion about the same and I am not representing
Outreach team here.

I agree on the point mentioned by Sam.
Rather than sponsoring this event, it *might* make sense to sponsor
attendance of a Debian community member given they have a plan/agenda
for the event (which is beneficial for Debian).

My suggestion would be to ask Debian members if they are planning to
attend this event on debian-events-apac [0] list. It might also make
sense to sent out a separate mail on the debian-outreach list [1]
again as we have many people in India who have been part of Debian
Outreach programs like GSoC and Outreachy.

Also, AFAIK there are at least couple of Debian Members who live in
New Delhi and they *might* me able to make it to the event without
additional funding.
