Thank you, that is way better.

Two more things I noticed:
* There is no notion of timeframe. It would be good to set
(reasonable) expectations without necessarily making them a hard
* It says “Total budget requested in USD” but the board agreed that
foundation members shouldn’t have to take the hit for fluctuations in
conversion rates, and other currencies are supported by the tools we
use for reimbursement. Therefore the approved amount should be in the
currency preferred by the requester.
