4 I'm standing for election again.
6 By way of a manifesto:
8 Since joining the board, I've tackled the multi-year project to complete
9 the Foundation's financial record-keeping including forensic accounting
10 to establish history since the start of Foundation.
12 Used those records, I worked (and continue to) produce annual financial
13 statements, and ensure all tax filings are completed; I've just started
14 work on the latest set of financial statements, as the new fiscal year
15 started July 1st.
17 The FY2020 (ending 2020/06/30) is available at
19 The draft version of FY2021 statement will hopefully be available in
20 time for the AGM, but is unlikely to be finalized before December.
22 In the past Fiscal year, as a trustee:
23 - I helped engage with Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) as being a
24 potential fiscal sponsor, which had the outcome that they were
25 unlikely to accept us, but we could apply anyway. SFC did provide a
26 detailed list of documentation they (or likely any other sponsor)
27 would require for consideration.
28 - I helped engage with Software in the Public Interest (SPI); SPI did
29 not provide further responses.
30 - Both of the above are documented:
32 I also provided financial answers to questions for potential
33 applications to the Open Source Collective and the Linux Foundation,
34 but I did not drive those applications and cannot speak to them
35 further (I encourage mgorny & alicef to document their progress)
37 As disclosure, I am also the lead of the infrastructure team.
39 I wasn't as active as I would have liked, as I spent several months
40 dealing with the consequences of a flooded basement (caused by my
41 neighbors).
