Hmmmm. Right.
/me notes.

Just for the info (some might wonder after all), the current policy, 
approved 2 years ago, is 1000 dollars per quarter for Angela and I. 3000 
dollars per quarter for Jimbo.

I suggested a revision of this policy in december 2005, which may be 
found on meta (it was before we moved to the private board wiki) : 

The new amounts suggested by Mav were removed, as they were to be 
included in the budget. I am not fully sure what these were, but I think 
it was 5000 for Jimbo and 3000 for other board members.

We did not make any budget in 2006 (we could never agree on one).
And this policy was never passed.
I do not know how far we exceeds (or not) the 1000 Angela/Anthere and 
the 3000 Jimbo budget.
