As far as I understand it, at least one PSC member is still convinced
that we don't have the neccesary understanding of how we'll spend the
money in place:

"Whether it is an "agenda" or "over arching goal" or "metric" or
"purpose", my point is simply that there should be a clear _end_ stated
for the funds.  T-shirts and such are not an end in themselves. :-)"

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, though.
