As far as I know (and I should know a thing or two about this), being reimbursed for
Wikimedia-related expenses is just a matter of requesting reimbursement and providing the
necessary documentation where needed. 

If you have been denied reimbursement for Wikimedia-related expenses after submitting a
reimbursement form, then PLEASE tell me (for the form, see
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Reimbursement_request_form.xls ). 

Setting up an explicit per diem policy to cover food/lodging/transit would only make such requests
easier (no need to get many small receipts).

It seems perfectly reasonable to be reimbursed for child care obtained to cover times you are
traveling on Wikimedia-related business. I don't see why reimbursement of that expense would need
a resolution.
