If you don't understand what's there, ask.
You obviously have logs of #spi, soyou know what's been discussed.
In a nutshell:
1. A regular treasurer's budget has been established
2. The treasurer has adopted a more informative reporting system
3. An assistant treasurer (Branden) has been selected
4. Banking is now done in a more convenient way for geographically
Obviously the work is incomplete. But progress is being made, despite
your efforts to ignore it. Jimmy or Branden can probably speak more to
this. If you want to engage in a discussion about this, I submit that
spi-general is a more appropriate forum than debian-vote. Of course,
this is not the only business that SPI must attend to, and we've had
other things to deal with also.

It would have helped if:
a) you had sent the invoice to the SPI treasurer
b) you hadn't sent it in the middle of a box of papers that otherwise
needed only to be stored
c) you hadn't made contradictory remarks about whether or not you
desired payment at all
Branden is not an SPI officer. Jimmy is the SPI treasurer. Branden is
a member of the board only.

Actually, "this year" would be inaccurate. "last year" would even be
inaccurate. This would have to be 2003 and before, right? Maybe a very
small part of the beginning of 2004?
