This was done because Diego e-mailed the board with a special request and the majority of directors felt that it was reasonable to reimburse for visa expenses, when we will not be reimbursing for a larger amount we earlier approved that would be needed for the person to make the trip.

I approached the board too. My visa expenses didn't exceed the sponsorship approved either. The email was sent to board gnome org and here's a screenshot: Why didn't the rest of the board respond then?
As you can see, this reimbursement was done by a separate vote as an exception to the current rule.
I'm sorry an exception or a policy review were not considered when you were denied a visa. As you can see, the board also decided we should discuss amending the policy about reimbursement for rejected visas in the future.

What is so special about Diego that his situation has provoked a policy change? Why was the reimbursement policies upheld in my case and relaxed in his?
The current situation on GNOME's financials was very much made public and in between being low on cash, how is that board can make such an exception?

If the board is going to make a policy change, then please bring it into working *first* and then entertain cases that occur after it not before. Otherwise it's just plain unfair.
