Thanks for pinging on this Christoph. Here's a status update - we are 
blocking on...

1) more SLOBs looking at and commenting on these tickets
2) someone with the ability to actually take money from SL's bank 
account and give it to someone else

...on each ticket - so folks, keep moving this forward, please.

At this point, I think this is going to be a no (not because it's a bad 
idea, but because it's not high-priority enough a use of funds), unless 
4 SLOBs very quickly think it's vital. Can we get some more SLOBs 
comments on this? We're blocking Rafael with a decision.

...and he's answered the question about Activity Central funding (they 
are paying for everything except his airfare, which is what he is asking 
the board for). This has been approved, and I believe that Sebastian is 
just waiting for the money transfer to take place, so we are blocking on 
that. Who has the ability to clear this? Walter?

>> phone line, http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2791

This has two +1's, myself and Walter. Can we get 2 more SLOBs to approve 
this (or say why they disagree)?
