Are you supporting or objecting to having local groups request some of the
money that Friends of OpenDocument is holding?

I thought the plan was to have "local teams", such as the Brazilian, or
the French or wherever, all administering their own finances and then
giving maybe a flat rate as "Affiliation fees" or some such and then maybe
a percentage too.
My personal feeling is that Local teams need to work towards being
self-sufficient and it would be great if they can cover their own sundry
costs without always having to discuss minutia and waiting for TDF's BoD to
approve a sundry expense. I don't see any problem with Local Teams being
affiliated to both OOo and LO at the same time now. I guess some funds may
need to be restricted to one or the other but that is something for the
bookkeeping records and end-of-year financial accounts.

Hi Jean, all,

Instead of giving the LO money to The Document Foundation
for general expenses, we think it is better to make it available to
cover expenses that The Document Foundation can't or won't
deal with. Some examples might be the cost of marketing
materials (including copies of the user guides) for tables at events,
attendance at events aimed at potential and actual customers
(librarians, educators, etc), or just about anything that would be
valuable for spreading awareness and growing the community
and the customer base.
- maybe interesting for the BoD-ml (email@example.com)
- maybe some part of the money for a travel refund (see point 12 of the
BoD-tasks ? "We are not yet in a position to pay these"
