[edit] Purpose

The Fedora Finance SIG works across the Fedora Project to ensure that all contributors and groups have the financial resources that they need. We coordinate processes, budgeting, and strive to push financial authority and accountability as far to the edges as possible, while ensuring accurate and transparent accounting.

This SIG acts as a sort of clearing house, in an attempt to bring more collaboration and communication across the groups that are already spending Fedora's money, and the groups that perhaps need more financial resources at their disposal.

There is currently no formal membership for this SIG, nor will there be any elections as a result of this SIG. However, for the SIG to achieve its purpose, it shall require broad-based participation. If you care about the processes by which Fedora's money is budgeted and distributed, or if you are already someone who helps to spend Fedora's money, then you are both welcome and needed.

[edit] Mailing List

Currently we are using the ambassadors and fudcon-planning lists.
