Earlier this year there was discussion about forming a "Financial Team".
I'm not sure exactly if a team is required, but formalizing mechanisms 
for projects like translations and content, research or development, to 
look for funds - sounds like an excellent idea. We (local labs) have 
been thinking and talking for a long time about a "project bank" where 
projects could be tracked in a platform for funding, as well as 
requirements and funding could be gathered in bounties or calls for 
proposals (the other way around).

I'm cc'in Laura who has been thinking about the design of such a system 
for a long time.
What do you think? Maybe funding for developing such a platform is one 
of the first things to consider?
