Re: GNOME Travel Committee & Travel Policy: A proposal for consideration and feedback

You just need to let the committee know that you need to be reimbursed quickly and come to an agreement before hand. While it takes time for everyone to get their receipts in and us to reimburse them, we can make arrangements beforehand to accommodate people that have a specific need. (Knowing what you need ahead of time, getting your receipts in quickly, and making sure your estimates match what you asked for all help!)

Quicker turnaround and being able to accommodate people are some of the things we hope the travel committee will be able to address better.

What about "cash-flow"

If you demographics for travel assistance is people that don't have much
fund, they requiring them to pay upfront the airfare several month in
advance to eventually partially reimburse them later isn't very useful.
Cash-strapped is cash-strapped.

Not to be picky or antyhing but if today I'm offered to get sponsored to
go to a conference but have to pay upfront and wait several month to get
reimbursed, I'd refuse.

Just giving my feedback.
