Re: [steering-discuss] funding for system operations meeting


Hi :)
So the work was done for TDF but the decision to do the work was taken by one of 
the communities.  


I thought the event was a different one.  One that had been discussed in here.  
I remember people using the mailing list to meet up for further discussion at 
the end of one of the days but i guess that was a different event?  


Since TDF does have plenty of money to cover the short-fall i think it should.  
We don't want to discourage people from doing work that benefits TDF!  I do 
agree with David's earlier post that it would be good for the SC and BoD know 
about events in advance.

If the SC or BoD had been asked in advance then i'm fairly sure they would have 
agreed to pay about half if the other half was being paid by a community group.  
The problem is that the decision should have been put to the SC/BoD in advance.  
I think agree to it this time but avoid it in the future?
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi,

Norbert Thiebaud wrote on 2011-07-29 17:35:
Now you are getting me really confused.

Who decided what, and who is paying what ?

the board of directors of the German association, which will stay an independent 
entity also after TDF has been funded, but in the meantime is the legal entity 
behind TDF, decided that in their board of director's meeting.

So, a decision by the German association, *not* by the TDF SC.

However, since more money then offered by the German association is needed, and 
the weekend was for the TDF admins, I'd like to ask if the SC is agreeing to 
spending some of the TDF money for it.
