I think you are going to be the most expensive sprint this year. If
there are any people or companies who explicitly benefit from Ruby in
Debian, it might be worth reaching out to them and asking them to donate
to Debian. That said, it looks like some of the people who have the
most expensive travel are some of the people who most need to get there.
It's not at all clear that having the sprint in either India or Brazil
would have reduced costs significantly.
I'm assuming that a lot of the travel is reimbursed by SPI not by Debian
12,000 EUR would be a good chunk of the money they hold for us.
I'd definitely rather see the plane tickets for India and Brazil travel
come out of SPI.
