Expense policies

Please note the Collective name on invoices. If the vendor requires a billing address, you can put your address or the address of any core contributor of the collective.

If you are planning to submit expenses, it is always a good idea to get in touch with Till, first. But generally, we accept expenses in connection with:

Work on the project: Code contributions through Pull Requests, that we're accepted to be merged into one of our repositories. An invoice is required and the costs need to be reasonable, of course.

Representation: Official representation of the project, e.g. at a public event. If you're asked to represent or promote the project at an event, you can submit expenses for travel, material, preparation and tickets. Catering is excluded.

Infrastructure: Server costs, domains, CDNs, external services like analytics, fees and memberships provide the technical infrastructure of this project. For now, these expenses can only be accepted for the project itself. If funding is strong, we might support self-hosted projects in the future.
