Despite the above statement, your platform mentions “I would seek
suggestions on how we could try to advance Debian's goals by spending
money in ways we're not currently doing. While I think we should be
careful with money, I would be willing to authorise spending to try out
new ideas from others, where goals can be defined and the success of an
initiative can be judged.”
What kind of new ideas would be acceptable? Feel free to invent some
hypothetical examples to illustrate.
To other candidates, do you believe that we could benefit from using money
for other things than hardware and meeting/travel reimbursment? If yes,
what kind of things?
