Hello SLOBS and all!

Motion has already 2 in favor (Samson and Laura) and two against (Walter
and Ignacio).

Please Lionel , Sameer, Adam help us make a decision by stating your vote
or suggesting modifications to the motion.

I propose we start the debate of the base compensation with an amount of
US$100 per month. The main task has been clearly defined as *1 complete
financial report per quarter and it's publication on the Sugar Labs Finance
Wiki page *maximum 30 calendar days after the end of the period.

The next step would be to share with the community an *"open call for
candidates for the Sugar Labs Financial Manager role"*. I volunteer in
advance to give a hand with this.


Regards and cheers,

Laura V
