PR doesn't do any fundraising AFAIK. This is going to be one of the main
purposes of the new board of trustees as Daniel has mentioned before.

Makes sense to me, the more money, the more vote ;)
In response to Corey - doesn't PR already fulfill the role of the
fundraisers? Last I heard, they were the ones that contacted companies for
funds, hardware, and other resources, contacted institutions for our server
colos, and handled individual developer hardware requests.
Perhaps we could add some manpower and direction (not sure if they need it
though). Perhaps Swift and Klieber would be more qualified to comment.
