Mel, I believe that as a SLOBs member you get the same reports from
the SFC as the rest of us.

# On 31 July 2011, Total assets restricted for Sugar
$ /usr/bin/ledger -f /tmp/5mKPnnXTFW/sugar.ledger -e 2011/08/01 bal '^Assets'

        $ 21,141.78  Assets

We don't have a more recent figure, but we also haven't incurred any
major expenses in the interim. This approximate number was mentioned
in a recent SLOBs meeting when the question of funds as raised.

Christoph, would you like to volunteer to maintain a public version of
our finances? We are shorthanded in this department and it seems to be
an area of interest.
