The (only?) good thing of the 27/9/3 schema is that it follows the OSGeo
pattern, so we do not put QGIS on a lower leve than other projects.
I do not think it'll be a problem not filling up a Platinum position. We
can always change the levels for next year, especially if in accordance
with other OSGeo projects.

Sounds reasonable to me.

So what can we do for this? I would avoid setting up a new one, and we
have the problem of which account the money should go to. Any ideas?
All the best.
