I can attend, the dates work for me.   Most of my lack of time during
the last six months was because of a extremely reduced team at my
company.  The new hires are arriving in May, and I already blocked the
dates for the i18n sprint.

Just for the record, I do need travel and accommodation sponsorship. :(

If we did commit ourselves to use it, I don't see a problem, they
might not be very happy with us because of underusing it since
DC11, but it is vital for Debian to have all the i18n services on
a hardware we can trust, with backup and long term support planned.

Once again, we can prepare details ahead of time and a couple of
weeks I can start moving services to test everything and make the
most of the sprint.

And here is my public apology for DSA for not using the machine
right after DC11. :-(

Kind regards,
