Reporting at the weekly meeting
I re-worded the weekly meeting paragraph. I got the impression that Rachel's comments were trying to point out that we might want more definition there, not an actual objection to the idea of weekly reporting.
I feel very strongly that the Noisebridge Tor project should *make available* a report _every_ week. Ad infinitum, as long as this project is going. In theory (and I think the wording allows for this) you guys could create a google spreadsheet, share it with me, and as long as it's up to date every tuesday I always have your report.
To me the only thing that made it sound like the bookkeeper had to be at the meeting every week was the bit about answering questions so I added a sentence saying that the bookkeeper should make a good faith effort to be present to answer questions when there's a lot going on, like now and at some point when we transition to the new accounting system.
I also clarified at the end that the Bookkeeper may use me or another member of the project as proxy. I did this partly because if I feel we need more actual input from the project members, I would probably suggest that someone else be proxy because I won't know the ins and outs of the project.

Old Open Questions
A list of previously open questions that appeared on this page are listed below.
(We believe these questions are now closed, but would like to confirm with each author before removing them from this page.)
- Kelly would like the Noisebridge Tor project to designate a specific individual as financial officer for the Noisebridge Tor project, to be responsible for the bank account and provide periodic reports. Shannon has volunteered to fulfill this role.
- Kelly would like a summary of why the above scenario is the best, comparing and contrasting other scenarios:
- a Noisebridge Paypal account not connected to any bank account
- a Noisebridge Paypal account connected to a non-Noisebridge bank account
- a non-Noisebridge Paypal account (connected to a bank account or not)
- WePay account with bank account
- WePay account with no bank account
- bank account with bank other than Wells Fargo
- Rachel Lyra is concerned about thinking through the precedent this sets for a fiscal sponsorship model for noisebridge. She believes some documentation is necessary for this project to proceed:
- spell out what the noisetor project expects from noisebridge and what it intends to do in return.
- a document, conceptually a contract but needn't be in legalese. the parties to the contract are noisebridge and the sponsored entity. the entity meets, forms, functions however it likes. noisebridge makes an agreement with that entity or a representative of it. this agreement states what the relationship will entail, ie rights requirements and responsibilities on either side.
