Hello Avni,

I agree with you it should be clearly defined who in Sugar Labs is responsible 
for Google's collections.

Resources in Sugar Labs are limited and historically we had lost a lot of 
opportunities because uncollected grant, please research on Trip Advisor's case 
when lack of clear responsibility for collection let to an unbelievable lack of 
collection of US$40.000 for internationalization's projects.

Responsibility isn't clear at this point.

About the Financial Manager role, it was created by the Board on July's 
decisions last year, still they never appointed anyone for the role.

In the meanwhile, Adam has continue serving as the representative for Sugar 
Labs with the Software Freedom Conservancy since last period. Still, this role 
doesn't account for any financial responsibility according to current 
Governance<https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_Labs/Governance>.

I'm sorry we still don't have a wiki page that would easily resolve any 
financial question to the community. It is a tendency I'm hoping to revert by 
proposing the Motion 2017-08-10: Sugar Labs Financial Manager to have a monthly 
compensation.



Regards,
Laura V

Walter,

-1 since there are still US$7.000 from last Google's programs we participated 
still uncollected and currently we have no way of assuring we will collect 
Google's funds this time.

Google has been consistently paying us for almost 10 years. The fact that we 
have not yet seen the $7000 from GCI is an SFC interface issue.

The fact that we are about to jeopardize Samson's opportunity to represent SL 
at the GSoC summit is mind-boggling.

I presume we need a motion and a vote on this. Time is of the essence, so 
please respond ASAP.

Motion: Samson Goddy has been selected as a Sugar Labs representative to the 
Google Summer of Code mentor summit. He has requested a travel advance to cover 
the costs of his visa application. The advance, including wire fees comes to 
$US 627.05. This motion is to approve the travel advance. (As additional 
background, Google will be covering up to $2200 in travel expenses for two 
representatives to attend the summit. Since our other representative is local 
to the SF area, the bulk of that money would be available to cover Samson's 
travel, so the net impact on SL funds will be negligible.

regards.

Sugar Labs PLC,  please urgently page down to the all caps section below.

Samson,

Unfortunately, We are waiting for someone from Sugar Labs to reply to
approve the expense.  I don't know why they haven't replied.

SUGAR LABS PLC: By my calculation, Samson is asking for this:

  FOR TRAVEL TO GET A VISA, AND FOR THE VISA FEES ITSELF, SAMSON GODDY ASKS
  FOR A CASH ADVANCE OF TRAVEL EXPENSES (TO COME TO GSOC MENTOR SUMMIT
  2017).  The totals are as follows:

  If we use western union, N202,350 = $570 (rate set by WU)

  If we use wire, he's asking for 561+(561*.05)+13+25 = US$627.05 to be wired.
                                       wire fees

If Sugar Labs PLC replies with approval before Sunday night US/Eastern, we
can likely process a payment by wire on Monday.


We don't typically use Western Union, and it would be substantial effort for
us to do that, so we'd like Sugar to approve the additional wire fees as
it will make payment more rapid for Samson and easier for Conservancy.

Samson, your request was a bit ramble-y, so if I gleaned the wrong totals
above, please correct them.

Samson, in preparation for Sugar Labs PLC hopefully approving this request,
could you let me know if the wire instructions I used for you before are
still correct, and if not, send me new ones?
