I agree that Michael does a wonderful job with the monthly Treasurer's
Reports, I've been following reports for the past 3 years. Problem is:
I've always seen the reports only posted to the spi-private mailing
list, which is not accessible to non subscribers (and to subscribe you
must be a SPI member). That, together with the fact that I can't find
any reference to that link on *.debian.org, is why I thought it was not
public.  I believe a lot of other DDs do not know about that link, in
fact a couple of people which asked me my draft platform stared at my
