As far as I know, DFRI as a registered non-profit qualifies for
reimbursement directly from the Tor Project. Andrew is in the process of
writing up a contract with the German Wau Holland Foundation, through
which individuals and other not registered organizations can get reimbursed.

Andrew, my monitoring shows DFRI0 and DRFI3 as qualifying "fast exits"
since today, Nov 26.

I understand your worries and would love to see this discussed more.
