Accounting for Debconf 19 Travel… in 2020

Posted in Debian, Finance, GNU/Linux, Microsoft at 10:54 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Debconf 19 sponsors (Microsoft had already paid them for 3 years prior, worrying some SPI/Debian insiders who prefer to remain anonymous):

Debconf 19 sponsors

Summary: A deeper look or analysis of Debian expenditures, which grew more than twicefold for travel last year

“So I received an email from SPI treasurer (draft),” a reader has told us, “and I’m confused about the different numbers for Debconf 19. I’m no accountant, but maybe the draft includes “additional” costs? In addition to 132k in travel?”

“We say what we’ve heard from insiders.”We have already heard from insiders that this was mostly because they flew people from eastern Europe for perceived “balance”. And that those vacations (in another continent) were like gifts with strings attached to them. Or that there was a political motivation rather than a technical one. We’ll spare any interpretation of our own; readers are smart enough to make up their own minds. We say what we’ve heard from insiders.

“So, sure,” said our reader, “2020 costs must be way down for travel, but really 132k for travel? The prior year it was about 12k…” [sic]

From the Annual Report of 2019 [PDF]:


DebConf18
11,779.66 Travel

DebConf19
781.90         Banking fees
23,445.87      Conferences
122.11         IT
132,833.61     Travel
----------
157,183.49
 

Compare to the report from the year prior [PDF]:


DebConf18

898.93          Banking fees
50,990.61       Conferences
608.53          IT
50,227.21    Travel
----------
102,725.28

So it adds up a bit: $50,227.21 + $11,779.66.

Yet in the latest draft… (draft for all projects below)

== Per project summaries 2020-08-01 - 2020-09-01 ==

Per project donations have a debit amount specified, which is the SPI
5% contribution from the project towards the SPI general fund. Thus
total donation amount is net of this contribution.

Unlike ledger defaults, totals in the per-project summaries are
inverted. Meaning that expenses are negative and equity is
positive. This way projects that have funds, i.e. are in credit, are
shown as a positive amount.

  1. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)



  2. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

  5. Gemini Lets You Control the Presentation Layer to Suit Your Own Needs

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects



  6. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  9. The Web is a Corporate Misinformation/Disinformation Platform, Biased Against Communities, Facts, and Science

    Misinformation/disinformation in so-called 'news' sites is a pandemic which spreads; in the process, the founder of GNU/Linux gets defamed and GNU/Linux itself is described as the problem, not the solution to the actual problems

  15. When Twitter Protects Abusers and Abuse (and Twitter's Sponsors)

    Twitter is an out-of-control censorship machine and it should be treated accordingly even by those who merely "read" or "follow" Twitter accounts; Twitter is a filter, not a news/media platform or even means of communication

  18. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

  20. Good News, Bad News (and Back to Normal)

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)

    Gemini space now boasts 1,600 working capsules, a massive growth compared to last January, as we noted the other day (1,600 is now official)
