I think these are all great ideas. John's idea of proposal requirements is
very good. Then these proposals could be kept along with the public ledger
so that everything is out in the open, and there is never a question of "what
did the trustees do with that last $1,000 dollars?)
I guess a better question would be to take a step back.. how are we going to
make money? Currently, as far as I am aware we are at $0.00, not even enough
to fulfill the CVS ram request.
We have gotten a recent offer of help from Paul Nowack of the NAAEE (.org)
when we get ready to write grant proposals. He has a lot of experience in
that field, and has a great desire to help push Gentoo in the academia and
government areas. I had a video conference with him a couple of months ago
on an unrelated issue, he seemed to be a very well driven man. We also have
a few people here at IU who are good at grant writing (many NFS and IBM sur
grants). However, grants are only one avenue. I just had to throw that in
there as an FYI for the rest of the trustees.
