:) wonderfull!
if you put a map here, on next holidays I'll come to Monaco to have breakfast at Neddy's Palace, launch at flavour of Scotland and dinner at Seagoon Paradise.

anyway, I think the habit to publish financial reports was a good think, and I hope may it start again.

I also think that this would be a great practice to continue publishing reports for the following reasons:

1. We are open source platform and should be open everywhere
2. It will provide better understanding of Gentoo financial state for those who donated.
3. It may convince to donate donate more in case if financial state isn't really nice.

Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!

The Gentoo Foundation Inc. fully intends to continue the practice of publishing quarterly financial reports.
The latest annual report is on line.

I tried adding that information to the Wiki but I do not seem to be able to create the page "https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Foundation:Financial_Reports/2016"

All of our accounting records, tax records and bank access were poorly maintained by prior treasurers. In some cases this went back to the first treasurer: minimal hand-off of any records, or no formal records process at all.

Taking over as treasurer made it clear that there were no readily accessible financial records or books assembled & passed on by ANY prior treasurer. A huge effort was undertaken to re-construct all of our books, which is mostly completed.


Wow. It reads like there was serious dereliction of duty by past treasurers.

After all, this discussion has nothing in common with Documentation or Tips&Tricks and should be moved to Chat. Don't you care about choosing the right forum?
