I (incorrectly) assumed we were spending the OSGeo budget, in which case 
I'd be expecting some form of accountability. Since the paid positions 
are privately funded, then the accountablity (to OSGeo) is not needed.

Thankyou for your in-kind contribution. It is very grand considering how 
much personal time you dedicate to OSGeo as well.
