Generally approved, minor nitpicks:

- Could you seek reimbursement now, using DC13 funds, for the expensive
  plane ticket (talk to hug@d.o, keeping auditor@d.o in Cc), rather than
  wait until after the sprint?

- Regarding additional hotel nights for the mini-debconf: I don't think
  that it's fair, compared to other attendees of the mini-debconf, to ask
  for reimbursement for those nights (of course, I don't mind if the
  travel plans allow attending the mini-debconf). As hotel prices in
  Paris are quite expensive, if paying for the additional nights is
  really a problem, I'm open to discussing sponsoring that (it sounds
  a bit inefficient to pay for the travel, but do not all debian
  contributors to attend the paris mini-debconf). But I would prefer a
  separate request.
