The beauty of voluntary work is that you do it because you belive it should
be done.

As a mother and as a teacher, I strongly believe achieving quality in
software we offer to children needs to be done; it is not a choice but a
pedagogical responsability.

I am not a Sugar Labs member because of a conflict of interest.  So

:D I would like to convince you to become a SL member (I fail to see any
conflict of interest with a paid technical position from a hardware
supplier). I believe your insights and technical skills are very relevant
to the evolution of SL as a community and as an organization.

One idea that could easily work, is to design and implement a project
funding mechanism, where member projects can apply to refund according to
progress and expenses.

Best wishes and happy weekend,
