Great! I was also expecting it to be very productive and I am very happy
to know it surpassed your expectations!

The only thing required to get the reimbursement is to follow the procedure
that is described here: https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/DPL/Reimbursement
My approval was public and GPG-signed. It should be enough for SPI to proceed
with your reimbursement. SPI is catching up with reimbursement requests. If
your request has been sent already, they should be able to get to it soon.
(I'll ping them though)

I am happy to approve that. I'll work out the amount with him privately
and will make the request to SPI afterwards.
