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?
I explicitly mention in my platform that we should sponsor internship
programs like Outreachy. I think that we can fund 2 slots per year. But
this is also a subject that I wanted to discuss more in details with
"Outreach team" to which I would like to formally delegate the
and organization of our participation in such programs. This team
have a word on this subject too.
Of course, as you duly noted, this doesn't prevent us from organizing
a fun raising campaign to sponsor extra slots.
