FWIW, I really appreciate the work you're doing and I am happy to see
so much FOSS (and Debian) enthusiasts in Cuba. But really, the way this
expense has been handled is not acceptable. Expenses should be thoroughly
studied, and pre-approved (to double check its relevance and viability).
Please, let's avoid similar situations in the future.

I will approve the reimbursement _this time_, but I expect future requests
to follow standard rules (and be more thought-out). The reimbursement
procedure can be found here:
