12k€ is roughly 31.4 % of the project's funds that Debian France is
holding. That excludes some donations we received recently and for which
I have to get more intel from the donor about whether it's supposed to
go in our own funds or the project's one.

If you'd like it, we could discuss with the administration board of
Debian France whether it's possible to allocate the additional 2/3k €
from our own budget. Currently we have around 16.000 € for our own funds
on the bank accounts (a little more, but some expenses are to be done) +
3.800 € in a cashdesk. It'd be a high expense but it's something we can
afford, and the association's goal is to promote the Project, and that
seems a good way to do so. No guarantee here, as I can't decide that on
my own, of course!

But I agree, if we could find some sponsors it'd be great.

With best regards,

It's far easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
