Re: Current state of Foundation finances

So, the FAQ has a call for donations, however I can't find how to donate anywhere, the closest thing I can find is making a PayPal donation to GIMP :-)

Blunt statements like this aren't very helpful, and they send a really
bad message. It's easy to read this line and think the worst.

Clearly we do have protected reserves - which we are preserving by the
freeze on sponsorship repayments. The extra reserves that we usually
have are expected to recover, and there is a plan in place to ensure
this happens. Can we try and clarify this on the wiki please?
