My full support to spend money on this. In both cases, you can show where
the money was spend and the benefits Debian got from it.

I am less enthusiastic about:

However, I think we should try and see if it is worth it. Maybe we could spend 
some money in next's year FOSDEM booth?  I am told Debian had a booth in
FOSDEM'2009 but I was unable to find it...
(I do not think this trying should be limited to Europe, but I do not know of 
conferences like FOSDEM in other parts of the world. )

A big "please don't" to:
