[Board] Request for approval

This 8k was "above and beyond" what was requested by the SAC committee.

During the budget meeting the board was unsure if the budget requested by
SAC took into account the website/branding refresh - out of caution we
allocated 8k in the event SAC needed the money to support the effort (with
additional T&M contract for example to work with selected vendor).

The budget requested by the SAC committee remains unaffected. Subsequent
email indicated that SAC was not concerned about any additional
website/branding refresh overhead (being happy to stand up drupal /
wordpress / whatever with budget requested).

Note the board has budgeted 15k for SAC:
- This is slightly more then the last years 13k as we are still assuming
additional effort will be required for the website/branding refresh
- Last year sac spent 6k, leaving 7k remaining.
- This should leave SAC with an additional 10k to work with over and above
last year).

Final reminder budget is our planning for the year, over the course of the
year a strategic change may change our plan. Last year we funded more code
sprints then expected, in part because they turned a profit allowing us to
run more code sprints, and in part because other committees were not active.

Alex does the above make sense? I am happy to walk through the budget with
any committee chair who wants to; although i would like to wait for the
wiki to be updated (and don't have time to do that myself).
