Hi Even,

Thanks for the suggestions. I've made the pull request at https://github.com/MapServer/MapServer-documentation/pull/877
It might also be good to separate out past and current sponsors in a future pull request. 
The budget suggestion sounds good - I've added that as an agenda item to the PSC meeting, see https://github.com/MapServer/MapServer/wiki/PSC-Meeting-2024-02-29.
