I want to ask questions. 

Was this situation visible or known before or at the time funds for Dev X Hackfest were being allocated? If so,
why wasn't a cautionary note not issued when funds less than requested were approved for some attendees and
that GNOME was looking at a tight situation on funds?

I have always found this a major hassle that there is no queue/request system in place to check the status of
a reimbursement and that one has to depend on e-mail threads to ask if a reimbursement was sent or
if it's being delayed. I was delayed by 2 months on my first reimbursement and now again due to this
situation. Could this be resolved by putting in place web application that one can login to with their e-mail
address and the details would of reimbursement associated with that person could be pooled in there?
This web application should also be able to send emails every time there is an update for the person. Perhaps
even streamlining and eliminating mistakes that can happen with a normal *.odt form, we can have the web
app take in details.
