Okay, with hindsight to the upcoming SLOB elections I'm giving this yet 
another shot: What is the status of Sugar Labs' finances?

As a member of the Sugar Labs community I find it quite frustrating that 
such basic information doesn't seem to be readily available (at least 
not on http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Finance where one would expect to 
find it).

Yes, it is encouraging that Rubén's and Aleksey's recent funding 
requests for Sugar Camp Lima were quickly acted and decided upon. 
However I would assume that such decisions involve a quick look at the 
current account balance which makes it all the less understandable why 
the corresponding wiki page doesn't contain that information.
