Well, i am worried about the general state of affairs when people are 
just guessing about the amount left. I would like to see how funds were
used in the last year to be able to decide on the future direction.

I know that you are merely there for bureaucratic reasons (while not 
currently part of the board), and it is good to know that you are 
dealing with this paperwork.

Well, the FOSDEM DevRoom does not need funding for a Social Event. It 
seems that those who want to come along to a good and very affordable 
restaurant for a nice meal with us, do so anyway. And this way, those 
that don't like to go eating with us are no longer obliged to come 
(even though that never stopped some).

Plus, it seems rather unlikely that we will ever have a DevRoom there 
again after this years appalling showing. But that is completely 
offtopic here.
