I don't know exactly your definition of "proper meals". I agree that
we should not sponsor meals in a restaurant or meals provided by an
external caterer. I was more thinking of things like soft drinks,
coffee, fruits, cookies, ... I'd like to buy for everyone as snacks
during the event. If you still think that we should not use Debian
money for this, then I'll probably sponsor them privately because I
don't want to collect money from every attendee.

Also there is a small kitchen at the venue, so it would be an option
to cook something on Saturday evening ourselves. It's not yet decided if
we do this or we go out to a restaurant. If we cook ourselves I
propose that Debian could sponsor the food.

Please note that with the current list of 6 attendees we are talking
about relatively small amounts of money (approx 100 CHF, not more
than 150 CHF).
