So, to be clear: would you authorize to use regular Debian funds to
sponsor Debian participation into Outreachy (which costs ~6000 USD per
intern), rather than going necessarily through dedicated fund raising
campaigns at each edition?

Considering that there are 2 Outreachy sessions per years, how many
slots per year do you think it would be sensible funding on general
Debian funds?

(And of course doing the above wouldn't rule out running dedicated fund
raising campaigns to sponsor *extra* slots.)
