As of a couple of days ago, Josh was planning on getting through the
current backlog of records and setting up some accounting software and
expecting to give a better summary of how things stand for SPI in October
or so. I've got a bit of data you can play with in the meantime, but
"real" data will need to wait 'til then, I'd guess. (Likewise, having
much free time to consider giving decent answers on questions like this)

I haven't talked to the ffis people at all yet; if you'd like to take
care of that, that'd be great. Debian UK is the only other European
organisation I know of that holds funds on behalf of Debian per se; I'm
not sure if Skolelinux, NUUG, SLX Debian Labs, or similar groups have
"Debian" funds that should be being accounted for too.

I suspect getting Europe done first, then SPI in October, then getting
around to all the other groups (Linux Australia, Debian Japan, various
latin american groups, etc) would make a lot of sense.

Should we move this discussion to -project? What information would you
like to get from me, and how? (either historical, in so far as I have it,
or ongoing authorisations/etc)
