Hi Mehdi, I've been working with a number of people (all in CC) who are looking at attending the Cloud sprint in Seattle, November 2-4. Looking up reasonable prices for flights using skyscanner.net and sharing rooms at a sensible-sounding hotel, I'm looking at a total of ~USD 6340 to cover 6 people - most of that (obviously) is flights. I believe each of these people would be a valuable addition to the sprint, so I'm asking you for sponsorship from Debian funds to cover those costs. Assuming this is OK, I suggest to leave people to book their flights and claim back individually. I'm more than happy to make a group hotel booking myself, as we're looking at sharing rooms to reduce costs. (If it's helpful, I'm also happy and capable to book flights for others and claim on their behalf - just ask, guys! Credit cards are easy...) I will (of course!) write and publish a report of what we achieve at the sprint, in conjunction with the other attendees. I'm hoping that we should agree some much-needed policy decided around official Debian cloud images, and make progress towards production and testing of those images. Budget spreadsheet attached.
